Above: Anjali Appadurai from West Coast Environmental Law shares her experiences from the perspective of a younger generation of environmental activists
On January 20, 2017, over 80 activists from across the ages shared a meal and their experiences in Hewett Centre.
Older activists, including speaker Karl Perrin, shared experiences going back to the 1960’s, while younger activists, such as speaker Anjali Appadurai from West Coast Environmental Law, shared more recent experiences and concerns.
Everyone talked of the challenges in organizing and taking action in today’s world. The takeaway lesson was that we all realized how much we have in common whatever our age.
We hope these intergenerational conversations will continue in future gatherings.
