What can we do to navigate polarization? It starts with us changing the dance, and building the openness, empathy, and courage to transcend the divide.
Courageous Dialogues: Moving Beyond Polarization is a three-year applied research project being carried out by Selkirk College, Vancouver Community College, and Capilano University.
Join us to learn where the project is at, what we learned in our first year, and what we’re embarking on for year two. Most importantly, find out how you can get involved!
