Reciprocity and Reconnection in Sustainability Work

In this conversation, we are joined by University of Calgary Master of Social Work student, Holly Williams who specializes in international and community development. Holly explains how it is imperative for younger generations to reconnect with the land as we are all part of the same ecosystem, and thus have a collective responsibility. We talk about the importance of experiential learning and how games could be created to gain a deeper understanding of the climate crisis. Holly also emphasizes the necessity of grassroots solutions and social enterprise, which she found value in from her work with the Cowichan Green Community Society. She also references the interesting VR work being done by the Langley company Banging Rocks and the amazing University of the Fraser Valley faculty member Keziah Wallis.
