High Ground 2020, our annual civic governance forum, will be held at the Pinnacle Harbourfront Hotel in Vancouver, BC from 1pm on Friday, March 27 to 4pm on Saturday, March 28, offering plenty of time for learning, connecting, and inspiring (and being inspired).
At this special 27-hour event, which will take place under the banner of “Committed to Action,” we aim to foster peer learning, offer insights on how to nurture inclusive, equitable, and sustainable communities, and spark new collaborations.
Our program is still in the works and we’ll be announcing sessions shortly, but we wanted to share this new and exciting pre-conference opportunity with you!
NEW: Personal Journey to Reconciliation
This pre-conference workshop is designed to take participants on a personal journey of decolonization leading to Reconciliation. Learning the true history of these lands, gaining a place-based understanding, and looking at history through an Indigenous lens will allow for self-reflection and a deeper understanding of the ongoing trauma and harm from colonization. By the end, participants will be better able to demonstrate cultural literacy and discover ways to better serve the populations with whom they work. Participants should bring with them an open mind and an open heart to get the most out of what is sure to be an enlightening experience. Facilitated by Rhiannon Bennett and Andrea HilderRegister now
