Topics @ 10: “The Civil Society”

2020 -2021
Welcome to the “Brave, New World” (last year’s theme) of online meetings! The discussion this year will focus on the workings of The Civil Society and how this can enhance or impair progressive solutions to governance, economics, education…our entire lives!

Although we had hoped to meet in person in a socially distanced format, we know there are many who are concerned about the coronavirus threat to our demographic.

As a result, the topical meetings for 2020-2021 will be held by video conference (by Zoom) on the fourth Friday of each month:

  • September 25th, 2020
  • October 23rd, 2020 | Education – Home Schooling to Massive Open Online Courses
  • November 27th, 2020 | Economy – Minimum Income Proposals
  • January 29th, 2021 | Global Economy

Our social meetings will typically be on the second Friday of each month, as follows:

  • October 9th, 2020
  • November 13th, 2020
  • December 1st, 2020 | noon at CGPH for Christmas social and boxed lunch, $25
  • January 15th, 2021

You are welcome to join either one or all, online or in person (socially distanced), as you wish.  Please phone or email either of the convenors if you have further questions.

To join this group, please contact the conveners – Kristina Nilsson or Sarica Sion.

This discussion group meets at 10am on the fourth Friday of the month at Kristina’s home. We have coffee/tea, then view short videos on a particular non-fiction theme, followed by discussion. Our discussions will focus on insight to interpret, adapt to, and influence the changes.
