Zero Waste Conference Keynote Brings Orbital Zero Waste Perspective to The Sustainable Region


Her experience as a scientist and NASA astronaut gave Dr. Cady Coleman an orbital perspective. Now she sees our blue planet’s possibilities with a unique and hopeful viewpoint. Sharing her insights and vision for a world where people work together to accelerate the transition to a circular economy, Coleman had a positive message for the audience at the 2017 edition of Metro Vancouver’s annual Zero Waste Conference.

“We have everything and everyone that we need to live sustainably. Being open to seeing and hearing what others bring to the table, and brave enough to realize that what each of us has to share can be the key to advancing step-by-step towards significant solutions. Our success lies in being both open and brave when it comes to working together to find solutions to our terrestrial challenges.”

In this episode of The Sustainable Region we are pleased to present Dr. Cady Coleman’s opening keynote presentation to the conference, held Nov. 1, 2017, at the Vancouver Trade and Convention Centre. Dr Coleman is introduced by session moderator, journalist and profeessor Kathryn Gretsinger.
