dc.description.abstract As part of Green College’s ‘The Olympic Games in Myth and Reality Series,’ The Myth of the Green Games addresses the environmental impacts of the Olympic industry, development of Olympic infrastructure, and Olympic corporate sponsors. The speakers will be focusing on a range of issues related to the 2010 Winter Olympic Games as well as the BC-related impacts of the Alberta Oil Sands projects (funded by Olympic partners including the Royal Bank of Canada). Topics include: the nature and impacts of environmental racism, corporate sponsors, non-governmental organizations, "greenwashing" and the marketing of "green" non-sustainable projects, regional resistance to these megaprojects, and community-based alternatives. Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre. en
