A Sustainable, Resilient and Equitable Re-Start: the 2021 seminar series
As we respond to the acute shocks and stresses of the past year, this PICS-supported bi-weekly, online seminar series will focus on this crucial question being asked across British Columbia and around the world:
How can the restart be more sustainable, resilient and equitable?
These interlinked shocks and stresses include 1) the pandemic and public health concerns; 2) climate change impacts including flooding and forest fires; and 3) public outcry against racism equity and social justice.
We will address technical, policy, and scientific approaches in both the built and natural environment with local, national, and international speakers from academic, government, industry, and non-governmental organizations.
This seminar series, which started in fall 2020 and continues until spring 2021, is a partnership between the University of Victoria and the UBC Sustainability Initiative, supported by PICS.
