The InterSpiritual Centre of Vancouver Society presents Protecting Our Sacred Waters, a two-part event examining how political decisions and global economic activities have affected the condition of our rivers and oceans. The daytime symposium is for young adults (16-22) and the evening event is open to the general public. Both sessions will involve evidence-based and respectful discussions about how to protect and restore our sacred waters, a limited and precious resource for life now and for future generations.
