Welcome to all!

“Knowledge itself doesn’t make change for the better, it’s people with knowledge that do.”
This workshop and discussion will explore the idea of community-based social justice research. We will present a model of “social justice research” rooted in principles of accessibility, popular education as well as rigor, while at the same time critiquing prevailing ideas of what constitutes “knowledge work”. We will also share many examples of community-based social justice research projects and methods, directly relevant and applicable to Concordia students, including projects touching directly on food sovereignty and environmental justice. This workshop is intended for all students — whether you’re new to Concordia, or a seasoned student —  aiming to link your learning beyond the classroom. The workshop will last approximately 90 minutes. Presented by members of the Quebec Public Interest Research Group (QPIRG) at Concordia, as well as the Community-University Research Exchange (CURE).
Presented by QPIRG Concordia as part of the Sustainable Food Festival & the CSU Orientation
