The Comox Valley ElderCollege is ready to begin the 2020 winter session with a timely focus on the changes happening in nature.
The Saturday morning lecture series, entitled “No Time for Complacency” aims to foster understanding about changes to the environment that are leading to an ecological dilemma and to explore positive actions that can be taken to mitigate the challenges that we and future generations face.
Experts from various disciplines will share their insights and knowledge about what has played, and what may yet play a role in decisions to be made in our world and in the Comox Valley.
Action will be required from all generations, but especially the young one, which has the most at stake. Appropriately, the final lecture in the series will offer a debate involving a youth environmental action group, comprising local high school students.
The lecture series will run Saturday mornings 10 a.m. to noon, Feb. 8 – March 8.
While the lecture series promises to be stimulating and thought-provoking, a wide range of courses is also offered, varying in length from a single lecture to six weeks. Look for the current newsletter on our website: firstname.lastname@example.org. Printed copies can also be picked up at libraries, senior and recreational centres, legions, Royston Convenience Store, Black Creek Store and Cumberland Dodge City Cycle.
A public information forum will be held on Jan. 11, 9:30 a.m. at the Stan Hagen Theatre where instructors will give a brief overview of the courses. Registration begins the week of Jan. 20-24.
