Along the way, you’ll also see some bank notes specific to the gold rush, tokens good for a variety of human vices and of course, a real nugget of the stuff dreams are made of. Mining the Miners opens on 24 June 2016 and will run until the end of 2017 at the Canadian Museum of History in Gatineau, Québec. Located on the lower level, next to the Canadian Stamp Collection.

The facts are clear, 2.8 MILLION children’s lives could be saved each year if all women had access to secondary education. It has been estimated that if all women completed primary education, the under-five mortality rate would fall by 15% in low- and lower- middle-income countries, saving almost a million children’s lives every year. Secondary education has an even greater impact: if all women in these countries completed secondary education, the under-five mortality rate would fall by 49% – saving 3 million children’s lives annually. Education is vital for moving out of poverty. Every additional year of school that a girl completes increases her future earnings, which is good for her family, her community and her country. On International Women’s Day 2017, ONE Members around the world are standing up and demanding our leaders to do MORE to help empower women and girls around the world by giving them equal access and ability to go to school and receive a quality education!

An increasing number of cities and urban centres are looking to define themselves as “smart cities,” and Canada has joined this global trend. A smart city uses information technology to increase its efficiency and communications, thereby improving its services. Many aspects of its residents’ lives are affected, especially quality-of-life areas such as the economy, education, culture and the environment. Now is the perfect time, as we celebrate the 150th anniversary of Canada’s Confederation, to join the conversation: we will imagine a future “smart” National Capital Region, and hear what is currently being thought of and carried out in Ottawa–Gatineau, and what the effects may be on residents. Don’t miss this unique opportunity! Key figures from the academic, public and private sectors will exchange their views on the future National Capital Region. Registration is free.

De plus en plus de centres urbains veulent devenir des « villes intelligentes », et le Canada s’est joint à ce mouvement mondial. Les villes intelligentes utilisent les technologies de l’information pour être plus efficaces et améliorer leurs communications, rehaussant du même coup la qualité de leurs services. Cette démarche a plusieurs répercussions sur la qualité de vie des citoyens, car elle touche notamment l’économie, l’éducation, la culture et l’environnement. Alors que nous célébrons le 150e anniversaire de la Confédération du Canada, c’est le moment idéal pour se réunir et discuter d’idées de développement « intelligent » pour la région de la capitale nationale. C’est aussi l’occasion de nous pencher sur les projets et les réalisations d’Ottawa–Gatineau, et leurs répercussions possibles sur les citoyens. Ne ratez pas cette chance unique! La conférence « Villes intelligentes » rassemblera des personnalités importantes du milieu universitaire et des secteurs public et privé qui partageront leurs points de vue sur l’avenir de la région de la capitale nationale.
