We live in a time of wicked, messy problems that cannot be solved by any one sector, discipline, government, Indigenous Nations, or community acting alone. The challenges we face demand unprecedented collaboration and government coordination. So how can Canadian communities become leaders in the implementation of sustainable technologies, infrastructure and building design? Check out The Solutions Agenda: A Call to Action for and by Canadians. This agenda shares concrete actions organized under six thematic imperatives: access to opportunities and services, climate change adaptation and mitigation, social infrastructure, physical infrastructure, governance, and new economic/financial accounting measurements.

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.

Revitalizing the Social Sector


The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.
