From the local to the global

SECOND BIODIVERSITY CONVERSATION COMING UP

The second e-dialogue from the Biodiversity Conversations: How important are the common loon and polar bears to Canadians? series will use the monarch butterfly to illuminate the local to global interdependencies of biodiversity conservation. We hope to reveal the dynamic interconnections and the need for global governance systems essential to protecting critical habitats and migratory paths. Biodiversity, like climate change, does not respect political borders and requires a broader systems approach for its conservation.

Tuesday, November 28th from 10:00 - 11:30 am PST/ 1:00 - 2:30 pm EST on Changing the Conversation

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.
