Designed with an integrative approach in mind, this event will provide opportunities to convene conversations with people and organizations interested in, and actively working on, issues related to the myriad impacts of resource development throughout northern B.C. This policy-oriented symposium will focus on addressing the future of resource communities in a shifting political landscape.
There will be a public keynote event the evening of Thursday January 18, 2018, followed by a series of concurrent sessions during the day on Friday January 19, 2018. The POLIS Water Sustainability Project will be participating at a session on watershed governance.
The University of Northern British Columbia’s Cumulative Impacts Research Consortium (CIRC), with support from the ECHO (Environment, Community, Health Observatory) Network and the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions (PICS), is convening this event. In hosting this event, CIRC intends to increase the visibility of policy-relevant research and practices directed towards the complex and unique challenges facing northern B.C. communities. In both imagining and planning for the futures of rural and remote communities in northern B.C., this event seeks to promote collaboration and co-learning to stimulate intersectoral action, while celebrating innovative initiatives that are driving northern B.C. towards thriving and just futures.
Registration is free, however to secure your attendance you must RSVP to [email protected] before January 5, 2018.
