Learn about the issues
interVivos has put together backgrounders for each of the main issues we'll be discussing. Please take some time to review them before the big day! These election-issue topics were determined based on research MacEwan students completed earlier this spring.
interVivos is a non-partisan nonprofit organization. We understand that many attendees may have opposing viewpoints and discussions may become heated. We ask that all attendees remain respectful of one another.
We want to create a safe space for brave conversations. Here are some understandings that we’d like to set in preparation for the event:
Patience and compassion for yourself and others
Respect for everyone in the room
Listen to understand rather than respond
Challenge your assumptions
Speak honestly and with intention
What we share in the group stays in the group
Expect unfinished business
Attendees will also be signing a document when they arrive saying that they understand if they don’t follow these rules, they will be asked to leave the event.
