THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 26th @6.30-pm EST: TECH + YOU: Technology access – both in terms of how we increase it for the general public and how we restrict and regulate it to prevent harmful outcomes – is central to creating an equitable and progress-focused future. As we move further into the 21st century, we invite you to reflect on what has, and hasn’t, worked well regarding access to technology, and imagine how technology might serve the world of tomorrow. This workshop aims to explore the impacts of access to technology as it stands today and leverage speculative thinking to imagine access frameworks for the future.
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 27th @6.30PM EST: SHINDIG FRIDAY: a time to network, share ideas, have a virtual beverage with guests and presenters and have your say at SPEAKER’S CORNER – an evening of sharing and caring about where you are, where we are, and where you see us going.
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 28th @9AM EST: LIBRO SATURDAY: A day devoted to community, environment, and climate action. We begin with a discussion with our lead partner Libro Credit Union, a B Corp, an organization that understands the importance of community engagement/investment and how it impacts on the rural environment. And announce the Libro Credit Union People’s Choice Award for the best End of the Lane Conversation video.
Senator Rob Black addresses the delegation starting with his G2G bike ride this summer, then discussing how he sees rural unfolding in the near future. How rural community can accelerate its participation with regards to climate action.
The G2G Rail Trail will present their story following the Senator – this unique infrastructure project contributes to mental and physical health, is fully accessible, and inclusive, and allows anyone to walk, ride, run, through some of the choicest farm land and natural environments in Canada. The discussion will also touch down on how the G2G contributes to a healthier physical environment and is a part of the positive change in climate change.
Samantha Casey, and Miranda Baksh, two young women from Community Climate Council, a non-partisan, youth-led not for profit promoting climate literacy and political advocacy, will make a pair of presentations on the work they are doing to make our one and only home a healthier place not just for us, but for future generations. This is a call to action by tw0o young Canadians who are passionate about climate action.
Dr. David Lobb from the University of Manitoba will close the morning session with a presentation on the importance of soil as it pertains to climate. He will touch down on riparian edges, wetlands, how major shifts in land ownership have impacted climate, and how a healthy soil not only contributes to a sustainable food supply but it is one of the greatest carbon absorbers available to us.
A question will be asked right before lunch: “So what are you going to do to make the place a better place – starting today?“
12.30-1.30 – our virtual lunch as designed by Chef James Eddington will take place. James will talk about the food, and the recipe – setting the table for us to zoom into our meal with zest.
