Fall 2019 Public Dialogue Photos

December 18, 2019

Can’t Face It Alone: Climate Action Beyond the Individual was a public dialogue held in Vancouver on Friday, November 29th of 2019. This dialogue was developed and hosted by students participating in Semester in Dialogue, a Simon Fraser University undergraduate program designed to inspire students with a sense of civic responsibility and encourage their passion for improving society.

Our cohort wished to empower individuals to act collectively in the face of the climate crisis. Our primary goals in hosting this dialogue were to provide a means through which attendees could create connections with others, explore how to involve their communities in climate action, and develop tangible climate solutions.

Approximately 140 participants attended this event, including political representatives, environmental advocates, faith leaders, and everyday citizens excited to explore change made through collaboration and collective action.

This dialogue cultivated diverse discussions related to climate action beyond the individual. The event report, linked above, represents our key findings from these discussions and our recommendations for how organizations and community groups can advance climate action moving forward.
