Vancouver Economic Commission’s Bryan Buggey explains why COVID-19 should inspire a clean reset at Business in Vancouver’s 30 Ideas in 30 Minutes Digital Salon
Business in Vancouver’s virtual 30 Ideas in 30 Minutes event (August 25) inspired at-home audiences across BC and beyond with 30 speakers presenting 30 ideas on leadership, innovation, challenges and change. From the Honourable Janet Austin, lieutenant governor of BC, to Greg D’Avignon, CEO of Business Council of British Columbia, to Vancouver Economic Commission’s own Bryan Buggey, director of corporate & sector development, the rapid-fire speakers’ salon carried an underlying thread of resilience and recovery fuelled by swift innovation that has emerged throughout the global pandemic.
The entire presentation can be viewed over a lunch hour, though viewers eager to learn about the pandemic’s potential impacts on climate change can skip to 29:49. Here, Bryan explains how COVID-19 has opened opportunities for a clean reset – and delivers a warning that we need to leverage these learnings immediately to prepare for an even more dire crisis: climate change. By building a low-carbon circular economy that accounts for planetary boundaries, we can identify new, sustainable economic and business opportunities and move toward shared prosperity and a brighter, cleaner future.
