The concept of the “circular city” has the potential to solve a number of urban challenges
A circular economy aims to replace a traditional linear “take-make-waste” economy with one that is “restorative and regenerative by design”. While this approach has been primarily championed by businesses, cities are also in a position to capitalize on the benefits of a circular economy. But, what does a municipal approach to a circular economy look like? What are the opportunities and barriers, and which examples should cities follow?
Engagement expectations have changed and yet we're often using the same community engagement techniques we have used for years. We need a new generation of tools and practices to inform, consult, involve and partner with people in building better communities.

The First Nations Health Authority and BC Patient Safety & Quality Council have collaborated to produce a webinar series. The webinars explore the ideas of cultural safety and cultural humility and encourage participants to pledge their commitment to working towards a world that is free of systemic racism and inclusive of people.
The first webinar takes place on February 1st 2017 and covers the topic Pursing Cultural Safety: From Unearthing Bias to Realizing Reconciliation.
This webinar will feature Dale Littlejohn, Executive Director of the Community Energy Association. He will be presenting on the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change and what it means for BC local governments.
The Pan-Canadian Framework lays out Canada's commitment to the world on what it will do to address climate change. It is the plan Canada will follow to achieve the goals of a 30% reduction of GHG's from 2005 levels by 2030.
This is a free workshop with an optional light dinner provided.
Presented by BC Healthy Communities Society (BCHC) in collaboration with South Vancouver Neighbourhood House.
This initiative is supported by the Government of British Columbia.
