Join us for the 60th Community Lecture Series to learn more about the many ways in which taking action transforms personal lives, the natural environment and both communities and nations as a whole. From Canadian documentary films to activist songs; from the increasingly popular local food movement to developing a school community counselling training program in Nunavut; from civil disobedience to the power of the written word, we will examine the enduring human desire for growth and change.
