Reinventing Social Action: Is Collaborating with Opponents Selling Out or Smart Strategy? 


There are new demanding problems that call into question traditional approaches to social action. Significant strife has arisen in recent years within the BC activist communities over collaboration with other parties such as industry, First Nations and governments. Is collaboration needed to solve intractable social and environmental problems? Should it be an essential part of campaigning? Join a discussion around the forms and applications of collaboration and consider what a new understanding of collaboration could mean for a reinvented activism.

Ross McMillan is the President and CEO of Tides Canada. Ross was a principal architect of the Great Bear Rainforest project – one of the most significant conservation programs in North American history. Ross has extensive experience managing organizations and coalitions to achieve success in complex circumstances. www.tidescanada.org
