Northern Lights College: New Speakers’ Series
An exciting new speaker series at Northern Lights College is expected to generate entertaining discussions on a variety of interesting topics.
The impetus for the 2014 Northern Lights Speakers’ Series comes from Business Management instructor Nakib Ahmed, who saw an opportunity to examine various subjects of importance to residents in Fort St. John and throughout northeastern British Columbia. Ahmed will also serve as moderator for the event.
“The Speakers’ Series is intended to share perspectives and encourage debate on a wide range of interdisciplinary topics such as civic responsibility, social justice, health and well-being, culture and the arts, resource sustainability, and much more at the Fort St. John Campus,” said Ahmed.
The first speaker in the series will be NLC Geography instructor Wim Kok. Kok’s presentation, entitled “Resource Economy of Northeast B.C.”, will discuss the development of the resource industry in this region, and the boom and bust cycles that have occurred over the last century.
