We want to hear from YOU(TH)!
What matters to you matters to us. BC Greens believe it is critical to have a full understanding of issues from all different perspectives – especially youth, whose future is impacted the most by decisions made by our political leaders today.
We want to engage directly with youth to hear about the issues most important to you. The goal for our event is to identify issues most relevant to youth in order to inform BCGP platform development.
Our meeting will be a facilitated dialogue with brief panel presentations to kick off discussions on a variety of topics relevant to youth.
Facilitator: Andrew Weaver, MLA for Oak Bay-Gordon Head and Leader of the BC Greens
Mark Neufeld, Educator and BC Green 2017 Candidate for Saanich South
Rory Hills, UVic student and Strategist with the BC Greens
Caitlin Stockwell, UVic Law School Student
Claire Wood, UVic student
UVic Greens representatives will also participate
Our discussion will be transcribed to ensure your ideas are carried forward and we will provide you with our written report following our meeting.
We hope you will join us for an informative evening on November 28th!
Protecting your health
BC Greens recognize that airborne illnesses and pollutants pose a significant health risk to everyone, especially the young, elderly, and immunocompromised, while caregivers, healthcare professionals, and support staff come into regular contact with vulnerable persons. When choosing venues, BC Greens prioritize outdoor spaces, and indoor spaces with good ventilation. In closed indoor spaces, we encourage attendees to wear well-fitting masks (N95, KN95, or KF94), especially during the respiratory-illness season.
Creating safe spaces
The BC Green Party is committed to providing an environment free of discrimination and harassment, where all individuals are treated with respect and dignity, can contribute fully and have equal speaking opportunities. To support this commitment, all event attendees will be expected to follow the standards of our Safe Spaces Participant's Guide.
