The UR+ Symposiums in BC have been possible with the commitment, energy, and intellectual contributions of many individuals. Each of the past symposiums benefited from seed funding from entities hosting the event and sponsors. This year's URBC Symposium is hosted by NRCan and DRR Pathways Project.
This year's online Symposium is organized by Susanna Haas Lyons (lead process facilitator) and Jessica Shoubridge (lead content facilitator), and DRR Pathways Project secretariat: Murray Journeay, Mike Ellerback, Sahar Safaie, and Darryl Hoefsloot.
The core organizing team works with a group of session convenors, dialogue session moderators and a host of other contributors to pull together the program and advance the actionable strategies that will reduce risk and build resilience in Southwest BC. For more information about session convenors, moderators, and contributors for this year's symposium- please see the program.
