February event on Electoral Reform, Inequality and Environment

FairVote Canada, TransitionKW and Social Planning Council KW have joined in organizing a forum to discover what ignites the passion of citizens and groups working for change. We are coming together to explore shared visions and principles. See if we can articulate messages that we can all use to strengthen our positions and lead to better outcomes for our initiatives: Economic Equality - Democratic Renewal - Environmental Revival.

- Discover the connections between economic inclusion and fairness, environmental stewardship, and electoral reform
- Discover the values that energize those who care about the environment, social justice and/or democratic renewal
- Explore shared visions and principles, and articulate messages we can all use to strengthen our position and lead to better outcomes for our initiatives
