Wendy Sarkissian comes to town
Wendy Sarkissian, a consultant and academic in Australia, was an adjunct prof at the School of Community and Regional Planning at UBC last year. And she’s an author. She’ll be at SFU Harbour Centre on Feb 5 for a free public lecture to talk about her latest book, and of course her latest ideas and insights.
Kitchen Table Sustainability: Transform
Your Community Engagement with Sustainability
Why are community engagement processes failing to engage local people with sustainability issues? And what can we do about it? Wendy Sarkissian takes a hard look at current community engagement processes in Canada, Australia and elsewhere. She finds them failing to meet the challenges posed by sustainability in our cities and towns.
Wendy inspires us to use more targeted and tested methods based on leading practice principles that build community confidence and capacity and open the door to true community engagement: methods that help local people understand the dimensions and pitfalls of sustainability and build hope and confidence for the future.
