OCT 19: Pursuing Impact

Pursuing Impact

Impact is the difference between what would happen with action and what would happen without it. In the end, this is what matters; it is what affects communities, students and institutions like UBC. This symposium will unpack the notion of impact in international development and critically examine our pursuit of it.

The Symposium will feature;

  • An opening panel discussion hosted by Amnesty International, BCCIC, Capilano Global Stewardship Program and Oxfam
  • A feature presentation on the Sustainable Livelihoods Program by AUCC Students for Development
  • Returning International Service Learning student presentations
  • A closing Keynote presentation by Jacky Essombe: An African Inspiration
This Event is Free and Open to the Public but Registration is necessary. If possible, spaces will be available for registration on the morning of the event but not guaranteed. To avoid disappointment, please register in advance
Refreshments and Lunch will be provided.
