In a new event series called Activating Democracy, the Centre for Community Engaged Learning at the University of British Columbia explores the many ways that people can engage in non-partisan political action to improve the well-being of their community and strengthen democracy. In this series, participants will hear from experts such as former NDP MP Libby Davies and former Vancouver city councillor Andrea Reimer, who played a considerable role in strengthening Canadian democracy and political participation. Participants will also learn about opportunities to engage in social impact action to support the progress of our democracy. The events are open to anyone interested in knowing how to nurture a healthier and stronger democracy and make a positive impact in the local community. Participants do not require previous political knowledge to attend.
