Big Changes at Tamarack

Submitted by Paul Born on October 23, 2017 - 5:05am

Tamarack is changing to serve you better. After 15 years we want to continue to grow and to serve communities and cities with the latest in community change thinking in order to build Vibrant Communities.

Cities Reducing Poverty and Cities Deepening Community will operate under the banner of Vibrant Communities. There is an important synergy between these two learning communities, both work in cities, both use similar approaches to learning, the technical skills needed in both learning communities is similar and we want to maximise the potential of our members to change their cities by learning from each other.

To implement these changes, we have restructured the organization into two connected yet independent centres lead by Co-CEOs:

  • Paul Born will direct a re-envisioned Vibrant Communities (VC), which will provide support and leadership to the Cities Reducing Poverty (CRP) and Cities Deepening Community (CDC) learning communities. 

Many exciting new changes are coming for Deepening Community and we will be reaching out to members of our learning community for your input so we can design our programs in a way to make your work easier and more effective.
