Here at PumpTalk, we try to keep the focus on practical car and driving information, but every once in a while something comes up that our readers might be interested in that is tangentially related to driving. So this week, here are a couple of quick snippets for you.
Talking Transportation with The Walrus
First, our parent company, Suncor, is sponsoring an upcoming "The Walrus Talks" event and this one is all about transportation! "The Walrus Talks Transportation" features eight diverse speakers on the subject of transportation and mobility. I'm particularly keen on hearing John Lorinc from Spacing Magazine (one of my personal favs!) as well as Cherise Burda of the Ryerson City Building Institute (formerly from the Pembina Institute).
"The Walrus Talks Transportation" is on Wednesday, October 7, 2015 at the AGO in Toronto. You can check out the full list of speakers and read more about the event on The Walrus' site. [http://thewalrus.ca/the-walrus-talks-transportation/]
Talking Sustainability and Our Energy Future
We recently released our 2015 Report on Sustainability. In conjunction with the report, we're also hosting a series of conversations on our "What Yes Can Do" site. This week's topic is about our shared energy future: Why do you think finding better ways to produce and use energy is a shared responsibility? We'd love to hear your thoughts.
And if you're not sure that chatting about our energy future is up your alley, check out this video from our senior advisor of social innovation, Lori Gammell with her take on who should be involved in these conversations.
