Looking Back and Looking Ahead – Eight Years in Review
June 22 @ 11:45 am - 2:00 pm
Mayor Lisa Helps
Join Club members and friends for lunch at the Hotel Grand Pacific and a talk by City of Victoria Mayor Lisa Helps on Wednesday, June 22. Mayor Helps was elected as a Councillor in 2011 and has served as Mayor since 2014. In her talk, ‘Looking Back and Looking Ahead – Eight Years in Review’, she will reflect on this period and her role in helping to shape it.
In her blog post about her 2014 election platform, she says “enhancing our community’s individual and collective health and well-being is at the heart of what we need to do together over the next four years. And we also need to get ready for the future, future-proofing the city in terms of affordability, climate change readiness and the ability to work together across difference to rise to all the challenges that face us.
We also need to take a more global perspective and draw on solutions from cities around the world. To this end, part of the inspiration for the next four years comes from the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and in particular, Goal #11 Sustainable Cities and Communities. A key principle of the United Nations’ SDGs is that they’re inclusive of everyone – no one is left behind.”
The lunch starts at 11:45. Tickets are available on Eventbrite at $45 for members, $55 for non-members click here.
