What kind of thinking and action is required to develop stronger neighbourhoods?
We need thinking that is comprehensive, inclusive and guided by possibility. We need action that leverages a neighbourhood’s strengths, is based on residents wishes and that engages all stakeholders.
Join Brendan Reimer, Prairies and Northern Territories Coordinator at the Canadian Community Economic Development Network, as he shares learning and promising practices from the Neighbourhoods Alive! initiative in Manitoba. Learning will focus on:
- The creation of Neighbourhood Renewal Corporations, which invite all stakeholders to participate in community revitalization planning through a community economic development approach
- The design and implementation of government policies that guide Neighbourhoods Alive!
- Local opportunities to transfer this approach to neighbourhood renewal initiatives in Calgary and Alberta
