For the past decade, Jean-François has participated in numerous conferences on water and environmental management, led IBM's ties with some related research organisations and NGOs. He helped develop some core smarter cities concepts and has deepened IBM's involvement with several North American cities as a result. He is among the few Canadians trained by Nobel Peace Prize Winner Al Gore, and regularly presents the material seen in the movie An Inconvenient Truth -- and subsequent scientific updates -- to audiences across Canada.
