Event description

Description

Power: One River. Two Nations - Screening of an important documentary involving a significant engineering project, with indigenous drumming at the end.

When Hydro-Quebec approved the massive James Bay II hydro-electric project, the 15000 Cree who live in the region decided to stand up to the Utility company. The stage was set for a major conflict and delay.

Dr George Jergeas, Professor and Director of the Centre for Project Management Excellence at the Schulich School of Engineering, will deliver a short introduction of a documentary illustrating the importance of non-technical issues, such as indigenous, political, environmental, international and community consultation, that engineers must seriously consider when delivering projects.

Is this scenario being repeated on current and potential projects?

At the end of the one-hour documentary, indigenous drummers will demonstrate some cultural sounds. All are encouraged to participate in the traditional experience.

FREE ADMISSION plus best seating for the first 40 people to reserve a ticket!
