Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and hosted by alumniUBC.

This event will take place on Monday, October 15, 2018 at 6:30 pm.

The world seems more divided than ever. Social media has made it easy to follow like-minded individuals, creating echo chambers where dissenting opinions can be filtered out. As our viewpoints have grown more polarized, conversations between opposing sides – online or in person – have become more heated. This environment has enabled populist movements to rise and hashtag activism to thrive. Are these divisions new, or have they just become more visible? How can we overcome the most cynical manifestations of anger, such as name-calling and tribalistic thinking? Is it still possible to express differences of opinions in a respectful and constructive way?

Join our panel of UBC and community experts in the Lower Mainland for an important conversation about the growing divide of public discourse.
