Event Description

Mike Lewis is the Executive Director of the Canadian Centre for Community Renewal and co-author of The Resilience Imperative: Transitions to a Steady-State Economy. He also serves as the Lead Investigator for the BC-Alberta Social Economy Research Alliance (BALTA).

Mike is well known in Canada and internationally as a practitioner, author, educator, and leader in the field of Community Economic Development and the social economy.

In his writings and talks, he often weaves a diverse array of topics such as local food systems, energy sufficiency, affordable housing and land reform, low-cost financing and monetary reform, and democratic ownership together within a tapestry of climate change, peak oil, and an inequitable and increasingly unstable global economy.  

By donation.
