About this Event

We All Live From the Land

Dr. Harriet Friedmann, University of Toronto

September 14 | 9:00–11:30 a.m BY INVITATION ONLY. EVENT SOLD OUT TO GENERAL PUBLIC. HOWEVER, WE HAVE SAVED SEATS FOR ACADEMICS. IF YOU ARE IN ACADEMIA, PLEASE EMAIL forums@sfu.ca.

Because it is difficult to measure migration and track people’s movements, we are not yet fully aware of how environmental challenges and the industrialization of food production affects immigration.

Which is why it is crucial that we establish a dialogue between academics, students, policy analysts and—most importantly— refugee communities.

Yıldız Atasoy, the Director of the Centre for Sustainable Development, in collaboration with SFU Public Square and SFU Continuing Studies, invites you to a series of forums about the relationships between climate change, food insecurity and immigration, each hosted by an internationally recognized scholar.

IF YOU'D LIKE TO REGISTER, PLEASE EMAIL : forums@sfu.ca. PLEASE INDICATE YOUR POSITION IN ACADEMIA AND IN COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS.

The lived experience of refugee communities will be at the forefront of the public sessions of these dialogues. As such, these events are by invitation only. If you feel you could contribute to them, please reach out to forums@sfu.ca.
