Join leader Sonia Furstenau in a conversation with Harrison Johnston, BC Green candidate for North Vancouver-Seymour, and Andrew Williamson, BC Green candidate for Burnaby-Lougheed.
The conversation will be moderated by Lilah Williamson, daughter of Andrew Williamson and climate activist. Harrison Johnston and Lilah Williamson worked with a teen climate justice group called Sustainabiliteens in Vancouver to organize a climate strike of more than 150,000 people in September of 2019 – the biggest protest in Vancouver history.
Andrew is an award-winning filmmaker who recently produced the Canadian/German feature doc THE WHALE AND THE RAVEN (NFB/ARTE) which won the Women in Film & TV Artistic Merit Award at the Vancouver International Film Festival and is now on Amazon Prime. His newest doc feature, THE MAGNITUDE OF ALL THINGS (NFB/TELUS/TELEFILM) by Jennifer Abbott (The Corporation), will screen at the Vancouver International Film Festival and is described as perhaps the most visceral, reasoned call to action for humanity since An Inconvenient Truth.
Join us for a conversation about the dangers of our current government investments in fossil fuels and how we can transition to a clean economy to ultimately achieve carbon neutrality by 2045.
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.
