We are living in extraordinary times. Forest fires and extreme weather events are becoming more frequent and more intense. Parts of northern Canada are already warming up at three times the global average.

To avoid irreversible damage and keep global warming under 1.5 degrees, we only have 10 years to find solutions. Uniquely poised to help lead a global initiative, MaRS is making the climate crisis a priority. We are accelerating the adoption of carbon-reducing solutions through scaling cleantech ventures, working with business and government to create sustainable markets, and using our innovation hub as a platform to explore ideas and inspire change.

Join Canadian Club Toronto on February 7 to hear Yung Wu, CEO of MaRS, discuss the MaRS Mission — an ambitious initiative towards a brighter, cleaner, and more sustainable future.
