Let's build support for the value of child care by listening to people from a range of perspectives reflect on what child care means to everyone in BC.

We're pairing up speakers from different perspectives, including across generations (Gen Y'ers and Boomers) and occupations (an accountant, filmmaker, union activist, and child care advocate). After listening to facilitated and in-depth conversations, we'll open things up to include everyone in a community conversation about the value of child care.
