Dawn talks about residential schools and their impact on the people and their family’s who were involved. She passionately makes a plea for a link between what residential school survivors experienced, and how their future healthcare needs have to match the impacts of that experience.
This talk translates our society’s increasingly global conscience to understanding the challenges of homelessness and realizing the innovative community problem solving making a difference in communities across the nation. Amanda sees our acceptance of homelessness as a pathology of our disconnection with ourselves, each other and our planet. Amanda presents a vision of community where everyone is at home.
Diligently taking out the recycling every week, Nick and his family got to wondering just how much stuff flows though their household. Placing a set of scales at the front door, they measured groceries in and garbage out for a while, and developed some interesting perspectives about how we do, and don’t, think about what we use each day. Every little helps…or does it?
