Collective Impact in Neighbourhood Change

Submitted by Christie Nash on June 14, 2016 - 5:29am

From June 7-9th, 2016 over 160 of the finest minds in neighbourhood building from across Canada and the United states gathered in Edmonton, AB to explore promising approaches and resources that build resilient communties and neighbourhoods that create relationships of care, stong and connected neighbourhoods, Collective Impact, and resilient communities. 

With 16 workshops and 4 walk-abouts, these spaces were a time of deep learning, connecting, and sharing.  

One of these workshops was Collective Impact in Neighbourhood Change with Sylvia Cheuy and Christie Nash.

Collective Impact is a disciplined, multi-sectoral approach to collaboration that is demonstrating promising results on a range of complex community issues. This workshop will introduce participants to the 3 pre-conditions and 5 conditions of Collective Impact and use powerful case studies to illustrate the power of this framework in supporting effective neighbourhood change.
