DCE 2016: Day 3 Summary and Resources

Submitted by Christie Nash on June 13, 2016 - 5:08am

From June 7-9th, 2016 over 160 people from across North America gathered at Concordia University in Edmonton, AB to explore promising approaches and resources that build resilient communties and neighbourhoods that create:

  • Relationships of Care – Caring is active and alive in our communities because the skills, opportunities and benefits of caring – between friends, neighbours and even strangers – are recognized and supported.
  • Strong, Connected Neighbourhoods – Residents share their knowledge and skills; mentor each other; and, contribute their talents to complete needed community projects.
  • Collective Impact – Citizens, organizations and municipalities have the capacity to collaborate to tackle tough issues like crime; unemployment; isolation and loneliness; and, local economic development because they have discovered how to work effectively together.
  • Resilient Communities – The places where we live are better at enduring and “bouncing back” from hardships and crises because we have cultivated the shared leadership to effectively mobilize to enhance the community’s well-being.

These are the highlights and resources from Day 3.
