MacQuarrie Institute Lecture Series
Okanagan College Media Release

Okanagan College will host the second lecture in its MacQuarrie Institute series when systems ecologist Barry Wilson presents, System Ecology: Holistic Planning for Today and Tomorrow at the Salmar Classic Theatre on Tuesday, Feb. 3 at 7 p.m. 

Wilson will be joined by Dave Ramsay, Vice President of BC Tomorrow Society and teacher at Salmon Arm Secondary, in a presentation that will focus on a holistic approach to land use that encompasses a common vision for the future. 

Using recent examples such as the proposed Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion, Wilson and Ramsay will provide an approach to land use that moves beyond confrontation and instead creates synergies and innovative solutions. 

Wilson and Ramsay will also share information about an initiative they are spearheading that will bring systems ecology education into classrooms across the province. 

The event is by donation and doors open at 6:30 p.m. Anyone who would like to guarantee a seat for the lecture can purchase a ticket at the College’s Salmon Arm campus or at Wearabouts. The cost is $2. 

BC Tomorrow is a not-for-profit society that is building an online landscape simulator that will enable students to engage in an interactive exploration of land use in local watersheds, develop critical thinking skills, and improve their understanding of system dynamics.
