Policymaking is both a science and an art. This webinar will take you through the “science” of policymaking by providing an overview of the Canadian policy framework, including how policy gets created within the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government. Anastasia will also dive into the “art” of policymaking through stories based on her own experiences and observations in advocating for improved and enhanced environmental protections.

Participants will leave with an improved understanding of:
(i) the process of environmental policymaking in Canada;
(ii) our professional and personal roles in shaping Canadian environmental policy; and
(iii) where to find more resources and tools.
