Next Up B.C. 2014 Call Out for Applicants

Next Up was created by a community of people who wanted to help emerging leaders (that’s you!) develop new and better skills, smarts and ideas. The program is intense. Over 7 months, we’ll dive into a number of topics and disciplines, combining theory, practice, deep thinking, and hard skills. We’ll look at some of the most pressing Canadian policy issues both foreign and domestic. We will consider where “progressive” thinking is on these issues and how to solve them. We’ll look at how change is made in society. And we’ll meet some of the most innovative change-makers in BC — from the non-profit, labour, business and public sectors — who are working for a better world.

For the 2014 - 2015 year, Climate Change will be our lens for the program. Not every session will be exclusively about Climate Change, but we will look at how climate change is impacting the issues and solutions that we explore in the program: How will Climate Change impact public services, homelessness and poverty, immigration, democracy, food, our economy and how we approach our individual areas of focus? What is Climate Justice and how do we build it? We will look at what Climate Change means for social change work in Canada and globally as well as what kind of action is needed.

You don’t have to be an expert on Climate Change to apply for this years program -- just curious and ready to work for change.
