How does a sense of belonging impact how we think, feel and act in response to the climate crisis?
We are very lucky to live where we do. While our relationships deepen in response to changes in the weather, the seasons, the forests and oceans that cradle this land, in other places (some quite nearby), the impacts of climate change are immediate and devastating. What does it mean to belong to a place threatened by the impacts of climate change? Or what can it mean to feel like a place is claiming your commitment even if you feel you belong somewhere else? Should our choices to live in relationship with the planet’s systems be local or global? Both?
Explore these questions and enjoy the wonder of the community classroom at this year’s Burnaby Festival of Learning, where people throughout Burnaby have put together learning opportunities about climate and belonging for you to experience.
