Event Description

Please join us for Ecologies of Social Difference Social Justice evening panel: Vancouver--The Greenest City? A social justice perspective.

Date: Thursday, May 22, 6pm-9pm.
Venue: C680 - HSBC Hall, UBC Robson Square, 800 Robson St, Vancouver

This event is being organized by the Ecologies of Social Difference Social Justice Thematic Network at the University of British Columbia. Our network aims to promote research, outreach, and discussion on key issues at the intersection of nature, conservation and social justice concerns. We see the ongoing activities related to making Vancouver 'the Greenest City' as a key opportunity to explore some of the social justice dimensions of these efforts.

Our evening panel hopes to initiate conversations between the academic community at UBC, key policy makers and community activists and thinkers who are working on different dimensions of Vancouver's Greenest City effort. The event includes panel discussion, a facilitated Q and A and a reception afterwards.


Jordan Bober is a New Economist who devotes himself to the evolution of a regenerative, socially just economy by convening events, speaking and teaching, and by running a Vancouver-based community currency called Seedstock.

Melanie Conn is a long-time activist with women, co-operatives and community economic development. She is also a founding director of the Women’s Economic Council.

Stephanie Lim is the coordinator of the Renfrew Collingwood Food Security Institute, and a founding member of the Neighbourhood Food Network Working Group.

Dr. Robert Vanwynsberghe is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Educational Studies at the University of British Columbia. His research expertise is in sustainability and the related areas of social movements and capacity building.
