The Solutions Economy – Shaun Loney

“Ground-breaking Canadian social entrepreneur Shaun Loney shows how it’s done.
Innovation that leaves you asking, ‘Why isn’t everyone doing this already?’”
—Michael Toye, Executive Director of the Canadian Community Economic Development Network

Public Talk at Augustana  ………………………………….  Solutions Economy Workshop
Friday, Nov. 3
– 7:00pm  …………………………………….  Sunday, Nov. 5 –– 9:30am to 12:30pm


Shaun Loney is widely recognized one of Canada’s leading social entrepreneurs. He has started or mentored 14 social enterprises in sectors as diverse as energy, construction and agriculture.

His latest book An Army of Problem Solvers: Reconciliation and the Solutions Economy shows how “our toughest social and environmental challenges can be transformed into business opportunities that make communities more resilient.”

As one example, Aki Energy is western Canada’s largest geothermal company, with more than $7 million in revenue over the past four years. Founded as a non-profit Indigenous social enterprise, Aki trains and employs remote First Nations communities to pioneer the transition from expensive diesel generation to clean energy.

Shaun’s experience demonstrates how entrepreneurial vision grounded in compassion can tackle our greatest challenges and empower communities in need.

“Our Elders are recognizing social enterprises from back when our communities were healthy. Aki Energy is transforming Manitoba’s North, one nation at a time. ”
—Grand Chief Sheila North Wilson, Manitoba Keewatinowi Okimakanak (MKO)
