If you’re in the Vancouver area on December 11th, come on down to the RIO Theatre for Bring Your Boomers.
As part of Gen Why Media’s ongoing inter-generational dialogue series, Bring Your Boomers combines intelligent conversation with music, film, visual art, storytelling and dance to provide a culturally-driven entry point to discuss social transformation.
In collaboration with the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives and Leadnow.ca, ‘Power and Energy: Connecting the Dots’ explores BC’s emerging carbon corridor and the provincial policies needed to change course towards a green economy, just society and a healthy new era.
