The Reimagining Livelihoods Forum is a two-day, hybrid event hosted by the Live Work Well Research Centre (LWWRC), University of Guelph, on August 23 and 24, 9:00am-4:30pm ET. This event will be held in English. 

The overall goal of the “Reimagining Livelihoods” Forum is to gather with individuals and organizations to share, discuss, and engage with diverse perspectives, experiences, and knowledges about ways to make a living and a life. We aim to address themes of exploring livelihoods, using an intersectional livelihoods approach, and reimagining livelihoods.
