uOInternational Dialogues and Insights

uOInternational Dialogues and Insights conferences are gatherings of outstanding diplomats, thinkers and speakers from all walks of life who are eager to share their expertise and thoughts on thorny topics of relevance to the academic community such as climate change, global geopolitics, international health, sustainability and urban planning, and sustainable mobility.

This lecture series serves as a bridge to the international arena and is intended to provide a space for discussion and exchange in the spirit of experiential knowledge transfer in order to generate innovative and realistic thinking that will enable participants to rethink the world and build the future. The international conferences presented by renowned experts will contribute to the enrichment of the knowledge of professors and students of all levels of study, while increasing the visibility of the University of Ottawa. In addition, these conferences provide opportunities for information exchange and the creation of new collaborations. 

Organized under the leadership of the Office of the Vice-President, International and Francophonie in collaboration with the faculties according to the topic, the uOInternational Dialogues and Insights conferences are intended for students and professors of the University of Ottawa.
