Formats disponibles :


  • Date:

    First Nations reconciliation has to include rebuilding local economies. Problem solvers such as social enterprises, social entrepreneurs and the small farm movement are demonstrating we can tackle society’s most stubborn problems affordably.  How do we reinvent government to make it all happen?

He has co-founded and mentored 11 social enterprises including BUILD Inc (2011 Scotia Bank EcoLiving Green Business of the year and 2013 Manitoba Apprenticeship Employer of the Year).  Shaun was Director of Energy Policy for the Government of Manitoba (2002-2008) and a political advisor to Gary Doer’s NDP (1997-2002).
