The Discussion: The Purpose and Politics of University
We might be in it, avoiding it, or just graduated from it. Whatever the situation, every British Columbian has to think about university at some point in their life. University is, as we all have been taught, the bastion of higher education, but how did the university get its start in the first place? What was its purpose? And how has it changed over the centuries? We will be diving deep into these questions and more this month as we explore the purpose and politics of university.
About the Langley Young Greens
We are a group of young adults aged 16-30 who have been moved by the integrity, clarity, and commitment displayed by the Green Party. Our mission is to engage and empower youth in the issues that matter, to demystify the political process, and, ultimately, to make an impact in our community.
Interested? Why not invite some friends and make a night of it?
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.
