Future Leaders in Politics Summit, by GreenPAC    Sat Jan 22, 2022, Online

Organized by GreenPAC, Canada’s only nonpartisan nonprofit dedicated to building environmental leadership in politics, the FLIP summit will offer emerging and aspiring leaders from all backgrounds the unique opportunity to learn from former and current decision-makers, Parliamentary Interns and expert guests through a variety of fireside chats, workshops, and panel discussions.

Confirmed speakers include Green Party Interim Leader Dr. Amita Kuttner, Nunavut MP Lori Idlout, Kitchener Centre MP Mike Morrice, former Edmonton Mayor Don Iveson, Burnaby Councilor Alison Gu, former CPC Deputy Leader Lisa Raitt, and many more.

From introductory-level sessions to deep-dives into environmental leadership in Canadian politics, we will cover a range of sessions. They will be split into two concurrent streams (Advocate and Politico), exploring topics ranging from how decisions get made in politics and unconventional advocacy, to the impact of the electoral system on environmental progress, government accountability and much more. The summit will feature panels such as "Getting Environmental Leaders into Office", "Demystifying the Landscape for Municipal Climate Advocacy", "Young and Political: Taking the Lead for the Environment", and a Fireside Chat with an Environmental Leader in Politics. Attendees will have the opportunity to mix and match as desired.

The original FLIP Summit was one of the first events of its kind to utilize Gather, a fun and interactive platform that comes as close as possible to recreating the in-person conference experience. This year, to make the event as accessible as possible for attendees from coast to coast to coast, the entire event will be online again using Gather's virtual conference space.
Reduced prices for youth/students and groups will be available until the week of the event. GreenPAC offers a limited number of fully subsidized tickets for anyone experiencing financial hardship. Please email info (at) for more information.
