Join leaders from UBC, West Coast Environmental Law, and Vancouver City Council to find out what this means. With law professor Stepan Wood, activist Fiona Koza, lawyer Andrew Gage, PhD student Manvi Bhalla and Vancouver City Councillor Adriane Carr. Moderated by filmmaker and geography professor Avi Lewis.
