April 4 – What Makes a Good Life?

A TED Talk by Robert Waldinger

What keeps us happy and healthy as we go through life? If you think it’s fame and money, you’re not alone – but, according to psychiatrist Robert Waldinger, you’re mistaken. As the director of a 75-year-old study on adult development, Waldinger has unprecedented access to data on true happiness and satisfaction. In this talk, he shares three important lessons learned from the study as well as some practical, old-as-the-hills wisdom on how to build a fulfilling, long life.

April 11 – Asking Africa for Help

Speaker: Liz James

Since the age of 20, Liz James has had friends from various countries in Africa.  Many were refugees, and their relationship has often focussed on helping them.  But every time two cultures mix, both parties learn things.  Some of the biggest challenges we are facing right now, Liz believes, would be helped significantly by employing some of the strategies she learned in those cross cultural relationships.

December 6 – Amnesty International in Canada – An Update

Guest Speaker: Gord Barnes

Amnesty is well known around the world and in Canada for conducting research and generating action to protect human rights. Gord Barnes of the Regina Amnesty group will give us an update on some changes at Amnesty in Canada, as well as some of the current Amnesty campaigns. We’ll learn about the new Secretary General at Amnesty Canada, Ketty Nivyabandi and how the Write for Rights campaigns are being conducted during Covid.
