Broaden your mind with the Scholars' Hub @ Home Speaker Series

Do you enjoy hearing about the latest thought-provoking research? The Scholars’ Hub @ Home speaker series features discussions on a broad range of topics, with engaging lectures from some of York’s best minds. The Scholars’ Hub events are done in partnership with Vaughan Public Libraries, Markham Public Library, and Aurora Public Library. The Scholars' Hub @ Home series is brought to you by York Alumni Engagement. We invite students, alumni and all members of the community to join us. All sessions take place at 12pm ET.

Learn about the global ecological footprint and biocapacity accounts that are produced at York University in collaboration with researchers around the world. These accounts quantify the capacity of landscapes to sustain human consumption and infrastructure over time — information for the global community aiming for a carbon-neutral economy.
