The Duke of Edinburgh’s Commonwealth Study Conferences Canada is dedicated to advancing dialogue and debate on economic, social and environmental issues among emerging leaders from across the Commonwealth of Nations. Through its words, actions and programing, the Conference is committed to sustainable development and responsible organizational citizenship, while providing a platform for emerging leaders to consider as part of their work how they can advance environmentally sustainable practices within their own organizations and countries. As examples, the CSC is committed to advancing these values in the way it:

  • Adheres to carbon neutrality goals in its programs including transportation

  • Collaborates with suppliers and partners

  • Integrates sustainable development knowledge and dialogue into its programs

  • Promotes fact-based decision-making with its participants

  • Communicates with stakeholders

  • Operates its internal practices

  • Reports on compliance with this Statement at the end of the 2023 Conference

“The intention of this conference is to expose the participants to new experiences, new arguments and different perspectives, so that the quality and relevance of their decisions is improved.”
