You are invited to participate in the conference Common Vision, Common Action: Creating A Regional Agenda for Social and Ecological Justice!
Looking toward the municipal elections slated for the fall of 2018, we will be gathering with social and environmental organizations, activists, elected officials and community members to develop a regional policy platform for the Capital Region.
The conference will take place from October 13-15, 2017, at the University of Victoria, and will consider topics including:
> housing, land use and transportation;
> decolonization, reconciliation and self-governance;
> arts, culture and education;
> parks, ecological protection and food systems;
> water, waste water and climate action; and
> grassroots democracy, inclusive communities and people-oriented economics.
We encourage you to register for the conference and take part in this important discussion. The registration fee is $30 per person, with no one turned away. We suggest you register as soon as possible, since space is limited.

Thank you for your interest in the ecological and social future of our region. We look forward to hearing from you!
