Drivers and Barrieres

The third e-dialogue from the Biodiversity Conversations: How important are the common loon and polar bears to Canadians? series focused on the drivers and barriers to the national, regional and local resolution of biodiversity conservation. Previous discussions addressed the need to identify critical habitats for endangered species as well as the role of keystone species. Panelists explored how Canadians can work individually and collectively to break down barriers in critical public policy development solutions for biodiversity conservation.

Changing the Conversation

We develop meaning and purpose through sharing our stories and in conversations

Some believe we have yet to begin the necessary conversations, while others argue there have been ongoing discussions over many decades that have not been heard. Some stories, such as growth have become so dominant, they have eliminated space about other perspectives. Changing the conversation is about re-enlarging public space and re-engaging different generations in virtual real-time e-Dialogues.

This intergenerational space is an experimental opportunity to rethink and reframe modern day challenges relevant to Canadian communities, to co-create innovative and scalable solutions. Governed by the principles of Socratic dialogue, this space hosts virtual real-time e-Dialogues and lead virtual peer-to-peer learning exchanges. It is also a repository for learning, best practices, tools and methodologies—a collaborative space to join or start a conversation.
