About The Event

About the Event

Join the Vancouver BIPOC Sustainability Collective and CEP Vancouver on Thursday, February 23, for an evening of connection, learning, and community building!

This networking event is dedicated to supporting BIPOC environmental professionals in their professions and within the environmental/climate action sector at large. We gather to explore the JEDDI (justice, equity, decolonization, diversity, and inclusion) challenges within our sector and how we can each individually and collectively contribute to addressing them. This event invites BIPOC sustainability professionals and allies to join in these conversations! All are welcome!

What to Expect

The event will kick off at 6:30pm with a matchmaking game celebrating Black climate and environmental justice leaders and activists in honour of Black History Month. Then after a few short words of welcome from the event hosts, attendees will have the remainder of the evening free for open networking.

Appetizers and beverages (non-alcoholic) will be provided.

Event Hosts

The BIPOC Sustainability Collective is a new initiative that aims to foster a capacity-building community for BIPOC to connect and seek peer support while navigating largely white environmentalist spaces on the West Coast. If you would like to join before the event, you can visit the network’s Facebook group and answer the membership questions.

CEP Vancouver is a non-profit, volunteer-led organization dedicated to creating connection, inspiration and education for Vancouver's young and emerging sustainability and impact professionals.

Venue Accessibility

The entrance to the venue is off Cordova street by the alley. 312 Main is accessible by several bus lines. TransLink’s Trip Planner will help you to find your way to our building. There is no on-site parking, however there are several parking lots in the area. If you are cycling, you are welcome to park your bike inside on the ground floor in the ‘Guest Bike Parking’ area.

Territory acknowledgment
