Event Description

Saturday, March 10, 1:00pm to 5:00pm
anadian Memorial United Church Sanctuary, Vancouver

  • Are you concerned about the environment and social justice?
  • Are you ready for a meaningful and life changing experience?
  • Do you want some support and tools to take action in this growing movement for change?

Then come and experience the Awaken The Dreamer - Be The Change Symposium!

The Canadian Memorial United Church Sustainability Circle is proud to host this transformative experience created by the Pachamama Alliance and delivered by Be The Change Earth Alliance. The Symposium is a thought-provoking, challenging, and deeply moving multimedia presentation that features the combined wisdom of such international luminaries as Julia Butterfly Hill, Paul Hawken, Brian Swimme, Maude Barlowe, Van Jones and Desmond Tutu. Through a powerful combination of cutting-edge video clips and guided personal reflection exercises, trained facilitators lead participants on an exploration of four critical questions about our relationship with the planet:

  • Where are we? - Examining the current social and environmental realities of the world
  • How did we get here? - Examining the root cause of our current imbalances
  • What's possible for the future? - Discovering new ways of relating to one another and the Earth in  this emerging movement for change;
  • Where do we go from here? - Understanding the impact of our personal and collective actions, and, ultimately, how we can be the change we want to see in the world

The Symposium concludes with an opportunity to transform your passion into action through a Be The Change Action Circle - a small group of dedicated individuals who convene regularly to explore social and environmental issues, share their collective wisdom and experience, and support and inspire one another in affecting change on both a personal and planetary scale.
