For more information on the Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream Symposium and community sustainability forum at TRU Saturday go to www.changingthedream.ca.
“The symposium confronts the current state of the world, examines how we got here and most importantly looks at possible futures and how we can begin to work to create a sustainable and socially just future,” says Jay Goddard, one of the event organizers. “To be sure, the film and discussion presents a frank and realistic picture of the current state of the world.”
Participants will be invited to learn more about how they can become involved in supporting local initiatives, learn to be green consumers, create greater awareness, influence decision makers and feel empowered to begin to work towards change.
