Imagine, for a moment, a future where we have collectively found the perfect balance between caring for our environment, social equality and economic prosperity – allowing all members of our community to thrive.
It may require us to take different perspectives on local economic development, challenge how we measure value in our community, and re-discover practical wisdom about regional resource management.
Elly Green, Nicole Norris and Laura Koza explored this vision in a talk at the Orillia Community Development Corp Lunch n’ Learn held at Casino Rama on Oct. 3.
More than 200 people attended, including business owners and community members.
Work being done through various community initiatives at Georgian’s Centre for Changemaking and Social Innovation seeks to answer the question – how might we co-design flourishing economies and communities in our region?
