Building a Better Canada: New Interactive Map

Check out Building a Better Canada, an interactive map just published in our share section. It curates websites that host a diversity of initiatives, projects, and resources, aimed at finding sustainable solutions that ensure a better life for all Canadians. Whether they focus on the environment, the economy, social justice, or all three, they share a collective goal to engage diverse Canadians and to elicit positive changes to public policy.

While illuminating the intersections between websites, we hope this map will increase connectivity and enhance greater collaboration between all people working in this area. By removing barriers and providing access to invaluable knowledge, these websites not only invite citizens to engage in sustainable development, but also take informed action.

Changing the Conversation

We develop meaning and purpose through sharing our stories and in conversations

Some believe we have yet to begin the necessary conversations, while others argue there have been ongoing discussions over many decades that have not been heard. Some stories, such as growth have become so dominant, they have eliminated space about other perspectives. Changing the conversation is about re-enlarging public space and re-engaging different generations in virtual real-time e-Dialogues.

This intergenerational space is an experimental opportunity to rethink and reframe modern day challenges relevant to Canadian communities, to co-create innovative and scalable solutions. Governed by the principles of Socratic dialogue, this space hosts virtual real-time e-Dialogues and lead virtual peer-to-peer learning exchanges. It is also a repository for learning, best practices, tools and methodologies—a collaborative space to join or start a conversation.
