What can I expect?An unconference keeps all the good bits of a normal conference (diverse interesting topics, networking opportunities, informal discussions, Q&A) and gets rid of the rest. Unconferences are participant driven, we set the theme but you create the agenda, so bring your burning questions, experiences you want you to share, projects you want to collaborate on, and ideas you want to present. Together we’ll decide what we want to talk about, when, how and who wants to lead a workshop, pose a question, facilitate a discussion, share an experience or simply participate and build connections. Once the menu’s set, participants can cycle through sessions, using the rule of two feet.This unconference is an opportunity to learn, network and explore how the new Sustainable Development Goals through their universal nature, intersect and create opportunities for collaboration.What’s are the Sustainable Development Goals and why are they important?Ratified in September 2015 by all 193 United Nations member states, the Sustainable Development Goals are a set of 17 goals to eradicate poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and fix climate change by year 2030.Born from the legacy of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and a succession of environmental and high-level summits, the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have some unprecedented features.a) The SDGs are universalWhile the MDGs focused primarily on halving the number of people in the world living in extreme poverty, and predominantly targeted progress in the developing world, the SDGs take a much more holistic approach to the contributing factors that create inequality both between countries and within them. As it has been said, under the new SDGs, “we are all developing countries”.b) The SDGs promote partnership and collaboration as essential to their achievementThe SDGs acknowledge and encourage partnership and collaboration as essential to making progress. As a network involved with building the capacity of groups working towards sustainable development, BCCIC in undertaking a significant amount of work that seeks to both promote the general public’s awareness of these goals as well as facilitate partnerships and collaboration towards their achievement.To learn more about these goals, their history, and how they apply specifically to Canada, please see BCCIC’s report “Keeping Score : The UN Sustainable Development Goals”.Tentative Schedule:9 – 9:45 AM : Registration & Networking9:45 – 10:30 AM : Opening plenary10:45 AM – 11:30 AM : First set of sessions11:45 PM- 12:30 PM : Second set of sessions12:30 PM – 1 PM : Light Networking Lunch1:00 PM – 1:45 PM : Third set of sessions2:00 PM – 2:45 PM : Closing plenary & NetworkingRegistration is limited, claim your spot today!

      Saturday, Feb 13, 2016 -

      Time: 6:00pm - 7:30pm

      Victoria Film Festival: Lost and FoundGUESTS IN ATTENDANCE: Directors John Choi and Nicolina LanniJapan’s record-breaking 2011 earthquake and tsunami hit over 90 cities and took over 18,000 lives on Japan’s northeast coast. It also displaced over a million tons of debris but that hardly seemed to matter at the time. Within a year, that debris began showing up in the Pacific Northwest. This time, though, beachcombers knew where these floating foreign oddities came from and what had been lost. This is the story of the folks in Canada and the US who have made it their mission to reunite these items with their original owners and to reflect on not only what was lost but what can be regained.Presented by:UVic Centre for Asia-Pacific InitiativesRelease Year: 2015Runtime: 82 minutesDirected By: John Choi & Nicolina LanniGenre: Documentary
