What is sustainability?

Join us as we traverse Cascadia from Victoria, BC to San Francisco, CA exploring how this popular but elusive concept has come to be variably understood in this transboundary region.

This video captures what twenty-eight geography students and two instructors from the University of Victoria, learned through traveling and engaging with community groups, activists, government officials, entrepreneurs, and academics each tirelessly working towards more ecologically and socially just communities.

Reflections on the Cascadia Sustainability Field School was produced by Malcolm MacLean and graciously acknowledges Coast Salish and other First Nations whose territories constitute ‘Cascadia’. It is a tribute to all those who shared their stories with us,  the instructors, Dr. Cam Owens and Crystal Tremblay, the University of Victoria (Geography) and all the students who created this rich learning experience together.
