As part of Vancity's 65th anniversary celebration, promoting ‘thought leadership’ pertaining to the environment, sustainability, economic development and industrial ecology, this evening includes an air of engagement, conversation, lecture, questions and answers; a memorable evening aligned with the Vancity culture as an ‘innovator’ within the social, environment, economic and justice sectors.
Join leading renowned author, businessman, social engineer, and environmentalist, Paul Hawken, for an evening of exploration and inspiration.
Businesses, not for profits, social enterprises, government and individuals all have roles in creating vibrant local communities, healthy economies, and a great quality of life. Join Paul Hawken for a thought-full evening of inspiration, inquiry, and celebration of the good life.
Part One: Drawing on local and global examples, Paul will discuss ways to leverage our wisdom, our money and our humanity for a better world.
Part Two: A panel of local social entrepreneurs will join Paul in a dialogue about transforming our local community. Panelists include: Mark Brand (Mark Brand Inc., Boneta and Save-on-Meats); Am Johal (Community Engagement Coordinator for SFU Woodwards Cultural Unit); and Louise Schwarz (Recycling Alternative, Green Business Hub). David Beers, Founding Editor of The Tyee, will moderate/facilitate the dialogue inviting the audience to participate.
