Accelerating Community Change with Collective Impact, Tamarack

Dartmouth, Nova Scotia
November 26, 2015

9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
Dartmouth Sportsplex, 110 Wyse Road

Collective Impact is a comprehensive, multi-sector approach used to address a range of complex community issues such as education, poverty, food security, neighbourhood revitalization, crime prevention, and environmental sustainability. It has been gaining real traction across North America since it was first introduced by John Kania and Mark Kramer of FSG Social Impact Consultants in 2011. The rapid uptake of Collective Impact is the result of the powerful and lasting results it has achieved. The Accelerating Community Change with Collective Impact workshop is being led by Liz Weaver, an internationally recognized trainer and community builder with experience implementing multi-sector, collective impact efforts. Liz will provide an overview of the Collective Impact Framework as well as insights, strategies and resources that you can use to increase effectiveness, build collective impact and spark community change.
