An SPR Roundtable Discussion DATE: Wednesday, December 6, 2021 TIME: 12:00 noon PLACE: Education Building, Room 438

In recent years there has been much discussion of a New Economy which promised to provide good jobs and enhance our social welfare. While some people have benefited from recent socio-economic changes, they have not been the boon to working people that was predicted. There is continuing unemployment and underemployment and poor working
conditions, and social services have been eroded. However, there are signs a truly new economy is possible, as trade unions, working people and progressive social movements continue the struggle for social justice.

Join Dave Broad and co-authors of "Capitalism Rebooted? Work, Welfare and the New Economy" for a roundtable discussion of the impact of the New Economy on work and social welfare.

Sponsored by the Social Policy Research Unit (SPR)

Everyone is welcome. Bring your lunch. Coffee and tea will be

Richard Heinberg - Peak Oil and the End of Cheap Petroleum - November 29th, 7pm, U of R Ed Auditorium, Free Admission
Oil, War and the End of Cheap Petroleum

Journalist, educator, editor, lecturer, and a Core Faculty member of Ne
w College of California, Richard Heinberg is widely regarded as one of the
world’s foremost Peak Oil experts. He is the author of three recent books “The Party’s Over: Oil, War and the Fate of Industrial Society”, “Powerdown: Options and Actions for a Post-Carbon World” and “The Oil Depletion Protocol: A Plan to Avert Oil Wars, Terrorism and Economic Collapse.”

In his talk, he will argue that modern civilization is dependent on ch eap, plentiful energy. But we now face a critical moment in human history: Pea k Oil, where global petroleum production enters an irreversible decline, even as demand soars. Dwindling resources and increasing international competition for the remaining supplies have led many experts to issue disturbing warnings abo ut the coming decade. Find out how we can prepare for these coming challenges wh ile building community and striving for a sustainable future.

Book signing to follow session

The Fall General Membership Meeting of the GPS was held in Saskatoon on Saturday, October 14, 2006.  Sandra Finley was elected Leader of the GPS.  With the resignation of Sylvie Charpentier from the Executive, a series of elections saw Neil Sinclair become GPS President, and Mike Fornssler became Secretary while Jayna Lacey remains as Vice President and John Warnock remains as Treasurer and Chief Offical Agent of the  GPS.  The motion to change the Constitution to create  gender parity in the GPS executive was lost while the second resolution calling for more study on the issue of a dual leadership structure for the GPS was passed.  The report of the platform Committee was accepted and additional platform priorities were identified.  Several committees were struck to underake tasks related to election readiness.  More information will be provided here later on how you can become involved in these various tasks within the GPS.

The Saskatchewan Environmental Society is helping coordinate the process and is working co-operatively with a broad array of organizations and individuals. In preparation for the meeting, interested individuals can review the draft, working version of the Statement of Expectations, available at:
