Get to know Waterloo Global Science Initiative

Waterloo Global Science Initiative (WGSI) hosts a series of innovative summits that bring new energy and diverse perspectives to complex global problems.

In 2011 the Energy 2030 Summit produced a technological roadmap for a low-carbon, electrified future.

In 2013 the Learning 2030 Summit created a 21st century framework for secondary education. 

Strategic partnerships, mentorship programs, and financial assistance help make summit recommendations a reality.

In 2015 WGSI begins work on a summit that will explore scientific and technological approaches to improving global access to sustainable energy.
