April 29, 2020

Royal Roads University has launched the Cascade Institute to identify intervention points in global crisis situations. The institute, which is collaborating with the University of Waterloo, will focus on addressing critical problems faced by humanity, such as pandemics, climate change, growing wealth inequality, and social upheaval. “The institute will place the current pandemic within a broad, systemic focus on humanity’s global challenges,” said RRU Professor and institute leader Thomas Homer-Dixon. “Finding the opportunities to intervene and put us all on a more positive path is what the institute is all about.” Royal Roads (BC)
