On Saturday November 7, join CivicAction’s Emerging Leaders Network (ELN) for the 7th annual ELNstudio. In partnership with the University of Toronto, this year’s ELNstudio will power tomorrow’s leaders to take action today, and reimagine where they live.
This year’s event will feature unique opportunities to connect with rising and senior leaders through inspirational keynotes, storytelling, a civic engagement marketplace, collaborative working sessions and networking activities. The event will introduce a new approach for rising leaders to solve challenging problems in our region.
REIMAGINE WHERE WE LIVE
More than 150 rising leaders from the private, public and non-profit sector will come together to generate fresh ideas and innovative solutions to answer one central question:
How might we collaboratively redefine public spaces in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area?
Comprising everything from parks and trails to laneways and sidewalks to collaborative digital space to privately owned community spaces, public spaces are as multifaceted as the region’s inhabitants.
There’s a unique opportunity for rising leaders to reimagine where we live so that we can work towards creating the public spaces we need for the GTHA of today and tomorrow.
Speakers this year include:
- Sabina Ali, Thorncliffe Park Women’s Committee
- Matt Blackett, Spacing Magazine
- Hamutal Dotan, Globe and Mail
- Zahra Ebrahim, Doblin Canada
- Seana Irvine, Evergreen
- Dave Meslin, Beautiful City Toronto
- Natasha Mytnowych, Artscape Youngplace and Artscape Sandbox
- Denise Pinto, Jane’s Walk
- Michelle Senayah, The Laneway Project
- Ken Tanenbaum, Kilmer Group
- Jason Thorne, City of Hamilton
