Vancouver Changecamp is a unique event to learn, share and connect with change makers in the city. If you want to see change in yourself, your community or your city, Vancouver Changecamp is the place to start.

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 for Vancouver ChangeCamp 2011 is the upcoming civic elections November 19 for the City of Vancouver. This will mark the start of a 3 year mandate for the municipal government. This marks a great time to envision and act on the change you want to see.

Attendees at Changecamp are passionate about bringing about positive change. This year we are bringing together the most engaged changemakers 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.
