UPCOMING BIODIVERSITY CONVERSATION: DRIVERS & BARRIERS

February 22nd, 2018 from 10:00 am - 11:30 am PST / 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EST

The third e-dialogue from the Biodiversity Conversations: How important are the common loon and polar bears to Canadians? series will focus on biodiversity conservation drivers and barriers to its national, regional and local resolution, the need to identify critical habitats and the role of keystone species. What can Canadians do in their day to day lives to help protect and preserve biodiversity, individually and collectively? Panelists will explore how people can work individually and collectively to break down barriers, identifying entry points in nearby natural spaces, increasing accessibility for people who are less culturally connected to nature. If time allows, they will also dip into the connection between spatial justice and 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.
