Sustainable Community Breakfast

Building Community Connectivity

The next Metro Vancouver Sustainability Community Breakfast will take place Wednesday, May 9, 2012 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. at British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) downtown Vancouver campus at 555 Seymour Street, Vancouver.

If you asked community leaders to identify their top current social issues, what would they say? In 2011, Vancouver Foundation conducted a survey and found that the biggest concern was a growing sense of disconnection and isolation among people living in Metro Vancouver. That increasingly, beyond a handful of family and friends, we are growing indifferent to each other and we are less engaged in the life of our community.

Join us to hear how Vancouver Foundation is taking a leadership role in creating sustainable social networks that will help rebuild bonds of trust, spark civic engagement, and harness the power of individuals and neighbourhoods to work together to improve their communities.

Speakers:

  • Catherine Clement, Vice President, Public Engagement and Communications
  • Lidia Kemeny, Director, Granting and Community Initiatives, Vancouver Foundation
  • Al Etmanski, President and co-founder, Planned Lifetime Advocacy Network; Co-Chair, BC Government’s Advisory Council on Social Innovation
