From schools to halls of government, from airports to city streets and from the real world to the virtual, we are seeing powerful resistance to the politics of fear and division. In every corner of the world, communities large and small are mobilizing…

  • to build people-centred, life-affirming economies that wage war against POVERTY, rather than against the poor;
  • to grow a progressive POPULISM fuelled by shared stakes, solidarity and social justice for the common good;
    and
  • to connect the rights and dignity of all peoples to the rights and dignity of our PLANET.

In addition to the keynote address by Maude Barlow (National Chair of Council of Canadians), the day of presentations, performances, interactive exhibits and roundtable discussions alsofeatures a panel on Envisioning A Peoples' Centred Economy with Olivia Chow, John Clarke, Vicky Mochama and Maude Barlow.

Join us in exploring a true vision of ECONOMIC JUSTICE that sustains our shared humanity and our shared Earth.
