Event description

Description

Atlantic School of Theology and Pine Hill Divinity Hall are pleased to present “Seeking the Good Society: An Exploration of Social Enterprise,” Oct 11-13, 2018, in Halifax, NS. This event is open to the public and features a variety of presenters in a symposium format.

The Social Enterprise movement has been sweeping across Canada for several years, gathering momentum and bringing new hope to communities and individuals. As genuine responses to the failures of the market economy and of governments to bring about lasting social change, Social Enterprises seek a “third way” where businesses and non-profits invest in people first, solving social problems while providing meaningful employment. Local churches and parishes, too, are discovering the missional power of Social Enterprise.

The keynote speaker is Shaun Loney, one of Canada’s leading social entrepreneurs.

Shaun has co-founded and mentored 11 social enterprises, including BUILD Inc, which won the 2011 Scotia Bank EcoLiving Green Business of the Year, and the 2013 Manitoba Apprenticeship Employer of the Year. Before co-founding BUILD Inc, Shaun was Director of Energy Policy for the Government of Manitoba. He is the first prairie Canadian to be awarded an Ashoka Fellowship (2015) and was Ernst and Young's Entrepreneur of the Year in 2014. Shaun is a member of The United Church of Canada and lives in Winnipeg with his partner Fiona. Between them they have three boys - Aandeg, Weslee, and Owen. His most recent book is An Army of Problem Solvers.

Additional presentations (from speakers coming from as far away as Newfoundland, British Columbia, and Texas), include the following:

* Social Enterprise and the Charitable Sector

* Congregations' Participation in Social Enterprises

* Folkschooling

* Ekklesia as Enterprise

* Can Social Entrepreneurs Transcend the Individualism-Communitarianism Divide?

* The Camino Nova Scotia Story

* In the Spirit of Wahkohtowin: Contemplating Ecology and Economy

...and many more.
