March 13, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - March 14, 2015 @ 7:30 pm
Join us Friday March 13th 5pm-10pm and Saturday March 14th 9am-730pm as we showcase research and knowledge with a community organizing focus!
OPIRG-Guelph’s Social and Environmental Justice Symposium is a convergence of academic and community research, activism, and art focused on social and environmental justice issues. We are aiming to make research more accessible to all and to foster deeper relationships and idea sharing between academics and community activism. Our goal is to support the development of research that is useful to community based campaigns and projects working for social change and fostering a space for this exchange to take place. We would like to encourage opportunities for students and community members energy and work to be useful as a valuable resource to improve community organizing. This symposium will highlight community – based social justice research by students and community groups.
