Join Shanon Daub and Shane Gunster for an advance screening of a soon-to-be-released short documentary film – The Good Life, The Green Life.  This PICS-funded project was born out the challenge that dealing with climate change requires us to transform our society in some fundamental ways…which can be difficult for people to imagine, let alone figure out how to make happen. We set out to learn more about the ways people concerned about climate change are taking action, and to create a documentary film in the process that could help others get engaged.

The film features nine everyday green heroes from communities around the Lower Mainland who share their hopes, fears, ideas, experiences, vision and courage.  Shannon and Shane will discuss the research process behind the film, and how the documentary will be used as the centrepiece of an engagement strategy that invites a broad range of people into a conversation about what it means to live a good, green life.


Shannon Daub is the Director of Communication for the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives’ BC Office, and an associate faculty member at Royal Roads University.

Shane Gunster is an associate professor and the Graduate Program Chair in the School of Communication at Simon Fraser University.
