Join with social justice, environmental and labour activists to discuss challenges and strategies for creating a world in which people and the planet not only survive, but thrive. We will look at the major problems facing humanity: the escalating environmental crises, mass poverty and growing inequality. What changes are needed to our economic and political system to maintain and nourish our social and biological systems? Explore visions of a world in which human needs are met without compromising the natural ecosystems we depend upon.
The weekend will feature 2 plenary panels and 3 dialogue sessions. Outside of the sessions there will be opportunities to network, and share information through tables, displays, art, etc.
Speakers include: Iglika Ivanova, Robin Macqueen, Eric Doherty, Adriana Paz, Leslie Stern, Ingrid Steenhuisen, Peter Prontzos, Suresh Fernando, Derrick O'Keefe, Deborah Littman, Kevin Huang, and Youth for Climate Justice Now.
