Vancouver ChangeCamp addresses the need for renewed relationships among citizens and government. We seek to create connections, knowledge, tools and policies to drive transparency, civic engagement and democratic empowerment.
This year, the theme is the start of a 3 -year mandate for the municipal government. The civic elections November 19th mark a great time to envision and act on the change you want to see. Attendees at Changecamp are passionate about bringing about positive change. We are bringing together the most engaged change makers from across Vancouver. You won’t want to miss this so register now!
Join us to
- Learn: Get grounded in skills needed to make change, get practical advice and benefit from the experience of those in the community who have been trying this for a while.
- Share: Let everyone else in on your social change successes! Share your stories, your projects and your change.
- Connect: Find a unique constellation of change agents, business people, non-profits, activists, government folks and most importantly, people with lived experience in the issues we all care about.
And if there is something you really want to talk about that’s not on the agenda, that’s great! Lead a session on your topic in the unconference. Unconferences provide the opportunity for participants to share their experiences, raise challenging questions or facilitate a conversation on topics generated on the fly. It’s an engaging, energizing, and sometimes chaotic, way to ensure everyone has a voice in the discussion.
If you have session ideas for Van ChangeCamp 2011, please comment on the blog with your ideas or, alternatively, you may submit your proposals to vanchangecamp (at) gmail.com. Check out last year’s sessions for inspiration.
If you are excited about the new ways that change is happening in the city, curious about how change will happen in the future, unsure about the pace of change or just want to celebrate the changes we have already put in place, please join us at Van ChangeCamp.
Note: unfortunately The HiVE is not wheelchair accessible. :-(
