The Jeanne Sauvé Foundation is pleased to invite you to attend Canada in our Age of Discovery: Navigating the Risks and Rewards of the Second Renaissance on Monday, October 31, from 5:30-7:30pm. 

Our series of public Jeanne Sauvé Forum events, hosted at Sauvé House in downtown Montreal, explores the many angles of public leadership for culturally diverse societies.  

Please join us as we celebrate the book launch of Sauvé Fellow Chris Kutarna’s Age of Discovery: Navigating the Risks and Rewards of Our New Renaissance.

The world has never been more connected, and scientific discoveries and technologies are changing it quickly. Despite these advancements, much of humanity is struggling: the gains from trade and innovation are unequally shared, trust in institutions has faltered, populism is rampant while pressing challenges go neglected.

In his best-selling new book Age of Discovery: Navigating the Risks and Rewards of Our New Renaissance, Dr. Kutarna makes sense of our times and offers much-needed historical perspective to help us all navigate toward humanity’s best future.

“A landmark new book.” – The Guardian

“Everyone should read it.” – Michael Spence, Nobel Laureate in Economics

“A call to action we all need to hear.” – Kumi Naidoo, International Executive Director, Greenpeace

Sauvé Fellow Chris Kutarna is an author, public speaker, entrepreneur and researcher. He is a two-time Governor General’s Medalist, a Commonwealth Scholar and a Fellow of the Oxford Martin School with a doctorate in politics from the University of Oxford. He divides his time between Oxford, Beijing and Regina, and is returning to Sauvé House on the North American leg of a global book tour.
