Public Policy Book Club – Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind

Sapiens CoverOn the evening of Monday, May 29th, the Public Policy Book Club will be discussing “Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind” by Yuval Noah Harari.  The meeting will start at 6:00pm.  If you are interested in joining, please email winter.fedyk@gov.sk.ca for further details.

You can also check out policybookclub to see what other books are on the reading list.

From the publisher:

100,000 years ago, at least six species of human inhabited the earth. Today there is just one.

Us.

Homo Sapiens.

How did our species succeed in the battle for dominance? Why did our foraging ancestors come together to create cities and kingdoms? How did we come to believe in gods, nations, and human rights; to trust money, books, and laws; and to be enslaved by bureaucracy, timetables, and consumerism? And what will our world be like in the millennia to come?

In Sapiens, Dr. Yuval Noah Harari spans the whole of human history, from the very first humans to walk the earth to the radical — and sometimes devastating — breakthroughs of the Cognitive, Agricultural, and Scientific Revolutions. Drawing on insights from biology, anthropology, palaeontology, and economics, he explores how the currents of history have shaped our human societies, the animals and plants around us, and even our personalities. Have we become happier as history has unfolded? Can we ever free our behaviour from the heritage of our ancestors? And what, if anything, can we do to influence the course of the centuries to come?

Bold, wide-ranging and provocative, Sapiens challenges everything we thought we knew about being human: our thoughts, our actions, our power…and our future.

The IPAC Saskatchewan Regional Group is pleased to invite you to a live webcast:

Engaging Indigenous Governments and Businesses is the Canadian Economy


 

KellyKelly Lendsay - Indigenous Works Lendsay, President and CEO of Indigenous Works, asks “Why do First Nations, Inuit and Metis communities continue to be excluded from the mainstream economy?” Canada’s GDP could grow by $270 billion and social remedial costs reduced when Indigenous peoples attain the same levels of education and employment. The benefits to be gained on all sides are clear, yet there remains a great divide between Indigenous businesses and organizations and corporate Canada.

Indigenous Works has just completed baseline research that provides new insights into the current state of relationships between major Canadian businesses and Indigenous peoples.  Kelly Lendsay will present the study’s findings, and discuss the role that all governments and others can play in bridging the divide and fostering beneficial partnerships.

Webcast moderated by: Christian Kittleson, Associate Partner – Ernst & Young – Victoria Practice Lead – Government & Public Sector Advisory
