Public Dialogue: Can't Face It Alone - Climate Action Beyond the Individual

November 29, 2019

Can't Face It Alone: Climate Action Beyond the Individual

Friday, November 29th
4:30-7:30pm
Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue, 580 W Hastings St
RSVP: Eventbrite | Facebook Event

Join SFU Semester in Dialogue as we consider how the climate crisis impacts our communities, how climate action takes shape on a local scale, and how leveraging connections can drive climate solutions.

We respectfully acknowledge that this event is taking place on the unceded and traditional territories of the Coast Salish peoples including the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. This land was never surrendered, relinquished, or handed over in any way. We acknowledge that Indigenous communities are disproportionately impacted by climate crisis and that Indigenous leadership and the inclusion of all voices is integral to climate justice.

ACCESSIBILITY

This event's location is serviced by two elevators and there are two wheelchair accessible, gender-neutral washrooms on site. Chairs will be provided for all participants and tables close to speakers will be set aside for people with mobility needs. We aim to host a scent-reduced event. ASL interpretation will be provided at request - please contact ycgao@sfu.ca if you require an interpreter.

Please contact ycgao@sfu.ca if you have any additional accessibility concerns. We will try our best to address these concerns and will follow up with you to confirm accommodations.

FOOD

Snacks and refreshments will be provided. Vegan/vegetarian options are available.

SUSTAINABILITY

We currently hold a silver certification from SFU Sustainability. We aspire to host a minimal waste event.

CODE OF CONDUCT AND INCLUSION EXPECTATION

We ask all participants to commit to participating in a respectful manner, which contributes to building a safe and welcoming space. Please acknowledge that any disrespectful or harassing behaviour may result in my removal or banning from future events.
