EnVision 2019 is the 5th conference hosted by the Institute for Integrated Energy Systems (IESVic) at the University of Victoria. The conference explores technical, political, social and economic levers for climate change mitigation through discussions with those actively working on solutions. 
Event Description: 
Limiting climate change due to anthropogenic activities requires cross-sectoral, systemic, societal transformation. Actions include decarbonisation of electricity and fuels, electrification of energy services, reducing agricultural emissions and land-use change, and deploying carbon dioxide removal strategies. When considered with sustainable development goals, the transition pathways are complex, far-reaching, and formidable.
