Mount Allison University, 62 York St., Sackville, New Brunswick
Join us to hear engaging speakers, participate in interactive workshops, and have fun at our gala evening!
Common Concern: Standing Together as Global Citizens will enable us to reflect on the seismic shift in recent times of the global political landscape – evidenced in the election of a demagogue to the most important political position in the world, volatile referenda and electoral results in Europe, and racist, war-mongering, misogynist and anti-planet discourse, including here in Canada. Together we will explore what role Atlantic Canadians engaged in promoting social justice locally and globally can play in countering these forces that threaten the values of global citizenship – human rights, democratic participation, rule of law, public deliberation based on dialogue and access to accurate information, and environmental sustainability.
Speakers will include:
- Alex Neve
- Alice Mugisho Musmiwa
- John Perkin
- Tracy Glynn
- Dr. Dave Thomas
- Johanne Perron
