Canada's Conference on Social Innovation Mount Royal University 2018
As follow up to a conversation initiated at the Ashoka U Exchange in New Orleans in 2016 - we would like to advise that Mount Royal University (MRU) is preparing to host Canada's premier conference on social innovation. Building the Field: Canada's Conference on Social Innovation is scheduled for July 3, 4 & 5, 2018 in Calgary, Alberta. And yes, in case you are wondering, it is right before the Calgary Stampede!

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.
