High Ground: Communities for All Conference – Vancouver
March 23, 2018 @ 8:00 am to March 24, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
Our work to ensure that our communities truly are “communities for all” has never been more important. One leader at a time. One citizen at a time.
While global currents surge – climate change, moral leadership on equality, a global conversation on gender and power, international trade, a rising tide of newcomers amidst ecological disruption and a changing world order – local leaders are on the front line. And grassroots movements are putting them there.
Peace and good governance – that’s the Canadian way – built on a bedrock of local leadership in our communities and public education.
Columbia Institute’s Centre for Civic Governance held High Ground 2018: Communities for All from March 23-24, 2018 at the Coast Coal Harbour Hotel. At this 26.5 hour event, we aimed to develop a deeper understanding of the issues shaping our times, network with colleagues and take away insights on opportunities to build more inclusive, sustainable communities
