Please join us for a two-day event on Cumulative Environmental, Community and Health Effects of multiple Natural Resource Developments in Northern British Columbia with a focus on oil and gas. This event is being hosted jointly by three UNBC research institutes: Natural Resources and Environmental Studies Institute (NRESi), Health Research Institute (HRI) and Community Development Institute (CDI).
The NRESi colloquium on Friday January 10 (3:30-4:30) will provide a kick-off to this event. On Friday evening, beginning at 7:00, a public panel and discussion will bring together representatives from the health, environment, and industry sectors to engage with community members, policy makers, and researchers around this regional concern with global importance.
On Saturday January 11, a full day workshop will be offered for participants to reflect on the previous day presentations and discussion, and to hear from a range of research, community and other perspectives. We will then work collectively in dialogue towards a better understanding of the integration of cumulative environmental, community and health effects of natural resource developments.
