Shift - Tracing the Social Impacts of Covid-19
Join us as we explore and uncover the wide-ranging social impacts of COVID-19. Panels and community dialogue sessions will feature stories, lived experience, arts and culture. This event series will zero in on sexual and gender-based violence, mental health and well-being, anti-racism and decolonization, and what we as individuals and a society can – and should – do in these novel times.

Urban Challenges Series
Douglas’s Urban Challenges Forum, a partnership between the College, the City of New Westminster and Simon Fraser University, offers opportunities for local community engagement, education and awareness on complex issues. In 2021, Douglas College hosted an online event “Urban Challenges– Feeding the City: Building Local Food Security” with a focus on building capacity to produce food in the Lower Mainland and stimulating dialogue about this important issue in the region.

Description:
"What have we learned from the past year about our capacity to produce food in this region? What should we be focusing on to ensure food security moving forward: technologies, protecting the ALR, community gardens, just labour movements, public ownership, and/or new government funding? Can we build a resilient local food system that can respond to climate change, global trade interruptions and other future uncertainties?"
