La collaboration dans les territoires en mode impact collectif

Atelier virtuel |31 janvier 2023

La collaboration à l’échelle d’un territoire entre les différents secteurs (communautaire, public, privé) et les résident·e·s est de plus en plus courante, et pourtant, le travail en silo demeure un enjeu. Le contexte actuel s’avère propice à l’accueil, à l’adoption et à l’adaptation de nouvelles pratiques alors que nous faisons collectivement face aux limites des approches conventionnelles. La collaboration à l’échelle des territoires (quartier, municipalité ou région) est aujourd’hui incontournable pour faire face aux défis sociaux et environnementaux complexes qui nous touchent. Comment s’y prendre? Comme aller plus loin? 
Cet atelier virtuel aborde les stratégies qui vous permettront de démarrer ou de renforcer votre initiative d’impact collectif.

”I just want to tell you how much I loved the conference in Edmonton. The speakers and workshops were amazing. You did an excellent job of pulling this together. I can’t stop thinking about how I can apply what I learned in my work. Thanks so much for all that you and everyone involved did to help us all feel welcomed and part of a movement. I will recommend next year’s conference to others.”

“One of the best workshops I've been to! Very well organized. I took notes and ideas about how to run a good workshop just as much as I took notes on the content.”

"My passion has always to spend time in Life-Long Learning and Tamarack continues to offer new ways of thinking and/or doing!!! Thanks for all you do!!”

- 2019 Community Engagement participant


“Thank you for organizing a festival (not a workshop or a conference) for focusing on creating a learning place, rather than teaching - this way is key. Thank you for weaving Toronto into the event - it was almost another presenter. I wanted to let you know that it was deeply meaningful, only on the professional, but on human, personal level. Thank you again.”

- 2018 Community Change Festival participant


”Thank you for the opportunity to be part of this VERY well organized event! I met many people and left energized. We will continue to prioritize attending these events.”
