Notes: 

HistoryWhat historical event has captured your imagination? The significance of an event cannot be measured scientifically. Every historian, journalist or student could make
their own lists. This course is meant to draw attention to a number of events in history that left an indelible mark on peoples lives and an indisputable memory in the
minds of later generations. Pick something that interests you, and would interest the group and tell us about it. It can be an event over years or a point in time – a big
event or something small but significant. Any time period is fair game.

Climate Crisis Unpacked

Location: Likely on Zoom
Notes:

This course is running in a similar way to Realizing Reconciliation last season. It is designed to appeal to members as well as to the general public who may attend
without membership for $5. per weekly session. Climate change is worse than many of us expected. Our survival is threatened and we have to respond quickly and wisely
for our grandchildren’s sake. How do we decide which issues should be priorities when so many seem urgent? Which activist groups should we support? How do we
organize as a community to be effective? This series brings together speakers from government, the Indigenous community, activist groups, and others to share their
views on a feasible path forward. If you want to worry less and find positive solutions, please join us.
