Join us on Thursday, November 17 for the final installations of the Fall 2022 City Talks, featuring David Miller, Managing Director of the C40 Centre for City Climate Policy and Economy and former Mayor of Toronto. Doors open at 7pm and the talk begins at 7:30pm.


About the City Talk: In the context of the lack of meaningful global action on climate change at COP 27 and the latest science showing that immediate action is required if we are to have any hope of keeping the rise of overall average global temperature to 1.5°C, David Miller will speak to the success of leading global cities in taking action on climate – success which, if replicated, rapidly and at scale, could help the world halve its emissions by 2030, as science requires.


About David Miller: David Miller is the Managing Director of the C40 Centre for City Climate Policy and Economy. Mr. Miller was Mayor of Toronto from 2003 to 2010 and served as Chair of C40 Cities from 2008 until 2010. He is a leading advocate for the creation of sustainable urban economies. Mr. Miller has held a variety of public and private positions and served as Future of Cities Global Fellow at Polytechnic Institute of New York University from 2011 to 2014. He is author of the book, Solved: How the Great Cities of the World are Fixing the Climate Crisis (University of Toronto Press), and is currently serving as Executive in Residence at the University of Victoria.
