Raising Marpole Voices

Raising Marpole Voices was co-designed in partnership with the Marpole Neighbourhood House and South Vancouver Neighbourhood House. South Vancouver housed and unhoused members, community organizations, as well as City representatives, and UBC students came together to discuss resilience-building to support diverse community needs during extreme cold weather. Community conversations at the event helped reduce stigma through the sharing of lived experiences, and fostered community connections for future collaborative and inclusive actions in South Vancouver.

Neighbourhood Climate Chats

To kick off the two-year Climate Action Mobilizer (CAM) Project, the CAM team organized and facilitated an inaugural event: Neighbourhood Climate Chats (NCC).

During this convening event, the Climate Action Mobilizers hosted a number of keynote speakers and local climate experts who led table discussions on key domains for climate action in a World Café format. There were two rounds of discussion, and five climate domains that participants could choose from. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the NCC event was offered in a fully hybrid format.
