Tommy Douglas Institute:
Every year GBC hosts the Tommy Douglas Institute which provides a site of critical discourse on issues pertinent to teaching, learning and working in these changing times. In keeping with the values and practices that have long defined its founding Community Worker Program, the TDI invites stakeholders from classrooms to communities to join us in discussing, exploring and advancing ideas of critical and socially just pedagogy and social empowerment in the 21st century. From the very beginning, discussions on the climate crisis and environmental justice have been woven into the TDI, with these themes being its focus for three of those years - Environmental Justice = Social Justice: Rethink! Reclaim! Respect! (2017); Poverty, Populism, Planet: Envisioning Economic Justice (2019); and Our City & The Green New Deal: Educate! Organize! Transform! (2020).
Special efforts are made every year to ensure that it will be a “zero waste” event.
