Summary of the talk:
Join Tamarack for a free webinar on innovative collaboration approaches . Real, meaningful societal impact is attainable once we understand how to work together and collaborate in new and transformational ways.
The concept of the “circular city” has the potential to solve a number of urban challenges
A circular economy aims to replace a traditional linear “take-make-waste” economy with one that is “restorative and regenerative by design”. While this approach has been primarily championed by businesses, cities are also in a position to capitalize on the benefits of a circular economy. But, what does a municipal approach to a circular economy look like? What are the opportunities and barriers, and which examples should cities follow?
Engagement expectations have changed and yet we're often using the same community engagement techniques we have used for years. We need a new generation of tools and practices to inform, consult, involve and partner with people in building better communities.
This is a past event.
This is a free workshop with a light lunch provided, presented by BC Healthy Communities Society (BCHC) in collaboration with Lakes District Community Services and the Village of Burns Lake. This initiative is supported by the Province of British Columbia.
