This full-day workshop will be facilitated by Maya Gislason (SFU), Margot Parkes (UNBC) and Robert Woollard (UBC). Focused at the interface of public health, natural resource development and climate change, the workshop will explore how core public health competencies can be enhanced through integrative approaches such as ecosystem approaches to health and intersectoral dialogue that spans concerns around public health, equity, and ecologically sustainable development. The workshop will be experiential and interactive, starting and finishing at the conference venue, but also involving walking, facilitated discussions and site-visits in locations off-site throughout the course of the day.
