Hiking Trip ◦ This Hiking trip took place in the provincial park located in Komoka, just outside of London. ◦ Around ten people attended this event, and the overall feedback from participants was positive. Eco Scavenger Hunt ◦ This event was organized by King’s College’s Environmental Intern with some assistance from the Environmental Commissioners. ◦ Feedback from this event was positive overall.
Documentary Screening ◦ This event was organized by the Student Outreach Commissioners. ◦ 10-15 people attended this event. ◦ Feedback in relation to this event was generally positive. Local Solutions Speaker Event ◦ The planning of this event entailed a cooperative effort between the Environmental Commissioners and the Eco Club. ◦ This event featured two speakers from the London community. ◦ Attendance for the first portion of this event was strong; however, attendance for the second part of this event was weak. This can be attributed to advertising, scheduling and communication failures.
Itinerary ◦ 730 pm –Keynote by Ralph Nader – (LH 105). ◦ 830 pm – Question and answer period. ◦ 9 pm – Reception in Labatt Hall Atrium. Attendance ◦ Around 300 students attended this event. Feedback from Students ◦ The vast majority of the feedback that I received from students in relation to this event was positive.
This forum took the form of an In Camera committee meeting. ◦ Participants included – Club Presidents and KUCSC Exec’s. ◦ The Chair of this meeting will be the VP Student Issues. ◦ The purpose of this meeting was to generate clubs’ policy reform.
Negatives ◦ Several members present at the meeting did not fully understand what to expect from the meeting. ◦ Some of the topics of discussion were very contentious, and worked to derail positive discussion. Positives ◦ Through means of this forum, some positive decisions in relation to Clubs’ week were agreed upon amongst those participating in this forum. ◦ It was agreed upon by delegates of the forum that Clubs’ Forum meetings are something that should regularly occur in the future.
Structure, Purpose and the Frequency of Meetings ◦ Since the occurrence of the previous Clubs’ Forum meeting, I have been meeting with/surveying Club Presidents in order to come to a decision in relation to the Structure, Purpose, and Frequency of such meetings. Initial Thoughts Forum should have a roundtable, open style, format. General topics of discussion should be selected for such meetings through consultation with Club Presidents.
