In this seminar, members of the BC Coalition Institute (BCCI) and beyond will be sharing stories about their local ecosystem health issues and ways that they are working with community members on these issues. The BCCI is a growing Community of Practice of global health researchers, students and practitioners with a focus on health equity, connecting research and action on global health issues with local communities. In these talks, two such BC communities will be represented. Members from the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island will talk about forestry practices in the area, impacts on health, and ways that they are engaging important community stakeholders to encourage community stewardship. Then, members from the Rural Health Services Research Network of BC (out of the University of British Columbia) will discuss their work through CCEDARR Project in building resilient rural communities: responding to Climate Change and ecosystem disruption.
