In order to create the progressive, inclusive communities we want to live in, we first need to define how change happens and create a process for progress. In this age of fast-spreading, far reaching information, it’s easy to feel like a participant in the push towards progress just by sharing news, but what kinds of action really activate positive change? This session explores the value of advocating from the outside vs.working from within legislative systems, and the roles journalism, government and institutions play in moving the dial forward. How do we as a society come together to collaborate across our differences of need and point of view to create the trust necessary to move toward a better shared future?
With Jon Tattrie, Maureen Googoo and others to be announced soon.
This is a free event presented in partnership with the Halifax Public Library.
