"We must now speak environment, economy, foreign policy, health and human rights in the same breath," says Sheila Watt-Cloutier. "Everything is connected."
In this truly globe-spanning talk, Watt-Cloutier provides a clear, meaningful, and comprehensive understanding of the way these issues are interconnected, and what it means for the future of our planet. Speaking on leadership, she shows you how your community fits into the grand scheme of things, and how you can fulfill your mandate by understanding how the local connects to the global, and vice versa.
Drawing upon her ancient culture, and speaking from a position of strength, not victimhood, she helps audiences find common ground. Her Arctic voice-- not as far away as we might imagine-- enlightens and inspires. With inclusive good will, it bridges some extremely divided gaps around the world.
She will speak in Vernon on November 14 as part of UBC's Distinguished Speaker Series.
There is no charge for this talk but online registration is required.
