Season’s Greetings UNA, UBC, and UEL residents!
I trust that this email finds you well. Attached is my latest newsletter, full of local and regional information that I hope you will find interesting.
The newsletter also includes details about my next resident engagement session. As you’ll know if you’ve attended one of these sessions before, they are community events held on Zoom (at this link) on a topic that I think will be of interest to residents. This month’s topic is on a Circular Economy – a concept that I find very compelling, and also timely as we enter the holiday season. We will be joined by experts to learn more about this topic, and will then have a chance to engage with each other in small groups to discuss this topic, and also just to connect as neighbours. Mark your calendars for Monday Dec 13 at 7pm at this link.
If you would like to receive these monthly updates directly, please email me at email@example.com.
