Everything Is About To Change - By Doug Griffiths, Community Builder

In the near future, our communities will change radically. They won’t be designed and built around the same cornerstones – retail downtown, a school, a clinic, a post-office and transportation services. I know what you are going to say: It isn’t going to happen that fast. But remember, it only took us 10 years to go from those cellular flip-phones that stored 10 numbers, to our modern super-smart phones, which are more like minicomputers that respond to voice commands. It only took us 67 years to get from the Wright Brothers first flight to landing on the moon. Technology development and adoption doesn’t slow down. It grows exponentially. It will continue to come at us faster than we expect.

Doug Griffiths, former Minister of Municipal Affairs and founder of 13 Ways - a consultancy that helps communities overcome modern challenges and succeed - has tailored this impactful talk to address the specific challenges and opportunities facing rural and urban communities across Southern Alberta. Drawing from his accumulated experience of working with hundreds of communities over the span of his career, Doug is sure to leave you with a lot to think about as you work to plan the future of your own community.
