Community Conversation for a Flourishing Okanagan
October 6 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Join the Okanagan Circular Society (OCS) for the first of a three-part conversation series in the Fall of 2021. In this first session we invite you to participate in meaningful community dialogue as we explore the questions on everyones’ minds.
How can we shift the goal for the Okanagan from recovery to transformation?
What social and economic systems do we need to build resilience for the region and advance our communities in a post-Covid, climate-prepared world?
By participating in this community dialogue series, you will participate in the co-creation of next steps needed to advance social and economic transformation in the Okanagan region. Dialogue Sessions 2 and 3 will further refine these explorations with the goal of identifying key priorities, champions, and strategies for OCS action. We encourage you to participate in all 3.
Come prepared for something different. We use circle practices to tap into our community’s diversity and creativity, nurture relationships, and ensure the authentic, open exchange of ideas. For this we must all be responsible for listening and speaking with intention. Circle practice honours equality of voice and being, invites the diversity of perspective, and ultimately helps access the wisdom of community.
