Building Leadership to Create Change – March 3rd & 4th @ W2 Storyeum

The Canadian CED Network, together with their member organizations in BC are working together to host an event to bring everyone interested in community economic development together to learn, share, network and celebrate.

The event will launch with guided visits to projects and initiatives in  Vancouver that demonstrate successful applications of CED and the Vancouver Premiere of “The Economics of Happiness”, followed by a full-day of workshops and dialogue.

Community Economic Development (CED) is action by people to create economic opportunities and to enhance social conditions in their communities, with a special emphasis on those who are most disadvantaged.  CED is a strategy to create community-based solutions to challenges that result from substantial disruption of the economic base and increase isolation.  This event will focus on the current issues that face our communities today and how building a cross-sectoral network of organizations and leaders can confront these challenges using the CED approach.

Come join other organizers for change for two days of intensive learning, rich dialogue and meaningful relationship building. Be prepared to walk away with wisdom and inspiration to do great work in your community.



Planned and presented with members and partners of the Canadian CED Network
