Leading Through Collaboration – Beyond The Here And Now

How do we reach harmony with the environment on which we depend? Are our aspirations ecologically and quantitatively attainable? Are there disconnects between expectations and the accumulating effects of what we make and do? Plan to attend Leading Through Collaboration – Beyond The Here And Now, a “pan-professional” forum that calls upon professionals to undertake lead roles within our communities in order to bring about transformative, sustainable change. Join a diverse group of professionals to unify expertise and bring together complementary viewpoints in examining some of our greatest challenges . This all-day event, presented by Professionals-in-Society, is being held as part of part of Living the New Economy Week at Granville Island’s Performance Works. Keynote Speaker Helen Goodland, a United Kingdom architect and founder of The Light House, will examine whether or not a decade of green building and other efforts to respect environmental imperatives has moved us any closer to a solution. Other presenters include Michael Barkusky from One Planet Living; Jacquie Belzile of Energy-Water-Food Revolution; Jordan Bober from One Planet Living; Dr. Jeff Carmichael, senior economist and division manager – Metro Vancouver Utility Research and Innovation; Alberto Cayuela, Associate Director – University of British Columbia Sustainability; environmental consultant Melissa Chaun; Rosemary Cooper, principal of CreatingPLACES and coordinator for Simon Fraser University’s Sustainable Community Development program; Erica Crawford of Energy-Water-Food Revolution; Graham McGarva Architect AIBC of VIA Architecture; Dr. Jennie Moore, Director, Sustainable Development + Environmental Stewardship- British Columbia Institute of Technology; Dr. Jon O’Riordan, Senior Policy Adviser – Simon Fraser University Adaptation to Climate Change Team; and Stefan Storey from the University of British Columbia’s Bridge Program. Benefit from expert presentation with facilitated and informal dialogue. Engage with diverse professionals, and interact about challenges facing our common future, including needed solutions in facing ecological constraints. It takes place Friday, October 18. The cost: $85 (lunch included). Click here to register online.
