Our goal is to build Canada's Social Innovation community and provide a cross sectoral platform for social innovators, academics, practitioners and thought leaders to come together to share learnings and imagine possibilities.
While there is much work to be done, the first step is to build the Canadian network and confirm contact information along with areas of interest you and your colleagues may wish to explore over the 3 day period. As a result, we would ask that you circulate this email broadly to individuals who are working, teaching and/or associated with Canada's social innovation ecosystem. At this juncture we are planning a conference in which academics as well as non academics, practitioners and thought leaders can interact, share best practices and explore the unexpected. We envision a combination of delivery modes including: round tables, panel discussions, poster & research presentations, in addition to a wicked question galleria, a disrupter's design emporium and lightning talks.
The plan is to host the summit at the University and we are currently assessing on site accommodation as well as in Calgary's downtown core. If you are interested in learning more about the conference, helping us to organize, participating on one of the many committees, or simply want to be kept informed please complete the form below.
In the meantime, should you have any questions or suggestions, please contact Catherine Pearl at firstname.lastname@example.org or 403 440 5508.
