Reslience and Measurement: Webinar

1-2pm

Can you measure thriving and resilience? What contributes to thriving for individuals, groups, communities, cities?

In this one-hour conversation, Milton Friesen will speak candidly with Josh Yates about the Thriving Cities Project, who is developing a new paradigm for urban analysis, community assessment, and civic engagement based on a holistic framework of community wealth and well-being. Discussing theories and practices of measuring social thriving and resilience, who is resposible for it, and who does it benefit, this webinar will provide insight for evaluators, urban planners and community leaders alike.

Join us as we learn about this new paradigm of community analysis, what inspires it, and how we can benefit from its results.

7-9:30pm

585 Dundas St. East, 3rd floor

Join us for an evening of true, personal stories told by people of different ages, backgrounds and identities.

Stories of Ours is a project that aims to deepen community, invite solidarity and challenge dominant narratives through intentional acts of storytelling.

Stories of Ours aims to go beyond cross-cultural dialogue and create a place were we can lean into, support, and grow a culture of pluralism and solidarity. We create bridges between humans through the power of story and loving spaces for us to start bringing challenging conversations to the fore of our lived lives and tackle the systems of oppression that inform our daily lived lives.

How? By complicating the narrative with different voices as much as we can. :-)

Why new ideas need old buildings: A Panel Discussion for Doors Open

cal  Sun May 29
2:00pm - 4:00pm

The Masonic Temple - 888 Yonge Street

Vision /

In line with the Doors Open theme Re-used, Re-visited and Revised, this panel will unpack Jane Jacobs’ famous idea that ‘New ideas must use old buildings.’

Short blurb /

The space under a highway, a decommissioned school building, an old brick factory— across Toronto new life is being breathed into the aging structures and spaces around us. As part of the Centenary celebration of iconic Torontonian urbanist and writer, Jane Jacobs, this Doors Open collaboration with her namesake project Jane’s Walk will unpack her famous idea that "New ideas must use old buildings” in a lively and interactive panel discussion. With insights that reflect on more than just buildings, you’ll hear from the people who write about, design and re-build our ever-changing city. Take a closer look at Toronto’s urban landscape for examples of not only old buildings transformed, but recycled public spaces and infrastructure, too.

More than a job or even a career, what we want most to belong to is a story. This larger than life narrative enlivens our imagination and acts as the connective tissue for uniting the quality of our public spaces with our public life.

Every community longs for a story. This narrative serves as a gateway into our deep life together. Leaders in turn shape the culture of place through the circulation of these stories that convey their core values and deepest aspirations. Our communities in turn become the public stage where the wisdom and uniqueness of these stories may be lived out.

Do you have the next, great Bright Idea for our community?

Each year the Bright Ideas Innovation Fund of Central Neighbourhood House directs funds to start an innovative community project! At our Bright Ideas Symposium on June 4, 2016, we will “brainstorm” through fun idea generating exercises to identify what projects we would like started in our community.

(You can submit ideas whether or not you are able to facilitate the project-we can do the project in house or find a community partner if one is unable to lead a project.) The important thing is that we want to spark innovative ideas-without barriers! All ideas during this session are recorded and a committee decides at a later date which project is feasible and chosen as the next Bright Idea!

The application process is stream-lined and it is simple to apply-just one page! Individuals and organizations are invited to apply!

Centre for Social Innovation - 192 Spadina

This one-day event seeks to ignite the transformative thinking and innovative leadership necessary for Canada and Canadians to contribute to Agenda 2030 and the Global Goals for Sustainable Development. This “global political manifesto” focused on people, planet and prosperity calls for unprecedented levels of commitment and engagement by all parties, local to global. This gathering is one of many across the country and world that invites us to dialogue on how best to do so, in this historic moment.

The day with OCIC´s Annual General Meeting.

Following our official business, special guests will share ideas and opportunities for collective action by Ontario and Ontarians, within the broader national context, and then all participants will be invited to contribute to Roundtable discussions addressing federal government and Council consultation priorities. OCIC will draw on participant input to prepare a formal submission to a national policy and funding review, and to inform our own provincial research and mobilization efforts. This national review presents a significant opportunity for us all to provide input and direction towards Canada’s role in the world, and prospects for global leadership in our own province.

Preliminary Roundtable discussions topics include:

- the health and rights of women and children

- clean economic growth and climate change

- governance, pluralism, diversity and human rights

peace and security

- responding to humanitarian crises and the needs of displaced populations

- delivering results by promoting innovation and improving effectiveness, transparency and partnerships

Paid event. See website for pricing.

It’s been said that if you want to transform your community –throw a bigger party! We need to reintroduce feeling and aliveness as the lifeblood of our community. We have much to celebrate as our public life and the commons are transformed through the influx of regenerative practices and innovative ideas. Together these are contributing towards creating a sense of belonging and inclusiveness - the ground on which many of our new economies can thrive.

How can we create vibrant local living economies that see work, not as something to endure, but to celebrate? How do we shift our worldview from a focus on sustainability based on conserving what we have left to one of beauty and thrivability?

Have a project you are passionate about? Want some support moving it forward?

Could be a business project. Could be a personal project. Could be an arts project. Could be a philanthropic project. It just has to be something you’re PASSIONATE about.

Join us for our Toronto-based Give and Get Gathering on August 18th. May, June and July filled up quickly and we just opened up August.

It’s free. No membership required.

It’s facilitated by a group of professional business coaches/facilitators who want to help make great ideas like yours happen!

We promise to love your project almost as much as you do.
