Event Description

Explore the cultural and economic causes of the social, economic and ecological crises facing us today. We will investigate key underlying western values, beliefs and institutions in order to better understand the blocks to social change. Is the fundamental root cause of the crises a matter of personal behaviour, political will, economic efficiency, or institutional bias towards economic growth? This exploration leads to understanding the possibilities for a more positive future.

Offered as part of the Village Vancouver Transition School as part of Langara College's Sustainable Communities Summer School.

Instructor: Kathryn Chollette
