Some of BC's leading experts on sustainability will gather at Langara College on Friday and Saturday, June 11 & 12, to discuss two of the fundamental issues facing humanity: poverty and climate change. Talking and Walking Sustainability will bring together people engaged in social justice, ending poverty, climate change and environmental protection to examine the relationships, links and tensions of sustainability that combines social and environmental issues based on principles of equity.
You don't need to bring your hiking boots. We'll be talking about the sustainability walk and the need to keep both legs in motion: social justice and environment. Join us for stimulating presentations and dialogue, and to inspire action that supports a truly sustainable world.
