Cities Connect - October 2016

Submitted by Natasha Pei on December 15, 2016 - 3:54am

We are building a movement with the eradication of poverty as our end goal, and carefully selected Game Changers at the core of our work. In this issue, you are invited to learn about the Game Changer framework and participate in Vibrant Communities' exploration of Game Changers. Highlights include: 

  • Identifying Game Changers in poverty reduction - impactful strategies, practices and policies in income and employment, transportation, housing, early childhood education, financial empowerment, and more. 
  • Al Etmanski's 8 questions for thinking and acting like a movement
  • Sharing Stories of Success - Winnipeg Poverty Reduction Council shares how their community is collectively concluding their actions on homelessness with a 10 year strategy, and shifting to independence through income.
  • Meet the Coaches - Consider how Franco Savoia, Executive Director of Vibrant Communities Calgary; or Chris Soderquist, Leadership and Strategy Consultant/Educator, could help your initiative grow. 
  • ... and more!
