This series has only touched upon some of the fundamental issues that make up “politics”, and it should not be expected that this is the end of the conversation, but at least it is a start.
In this final session, we will begin to weave the pieces together - what might be some of the key elements of our “New Politics”? How can we overcome the barriers to changing politics in BC? Is it really “New” or just a tweak of who we are already?
We will take a look at how our economic and political paradigms shape our policies and platform, and we will draw upon some of the recurring themes that we might take forward for further consideration.
There will be the opportunity to pose questions to our panelists (including Adam Olsen) and there will not be any breakout groups.
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.
