CommUnity Innovation Lab (CIL) – February 3-5, Kamloops, BC
In keeping with its passion for “inspiring community conversations for sustainable change,” the Fresh Outlook Foundation (FOF) is hosting its first CommUnity Innovation Lab (CIL) in Kamloops, BC February 3rd to 5th at Thompson Rivers University.
Urban Systems and Urban Matters are proud to be sponsoring this event.
What is CIL?
CIL is a community-inspired conversation that will help participants explore and then drive positive change in Kamloops and beyond. In a step-by-step process, they will get ready, informed, connected, inspired, and organized before getting busy making their communities healthier, happier, and more prosperous!
Why is CIL unique?
CIL combines best facilitation and public engagement tactics with emerging social learning, social innovation, and collective impact tools to stimulate multi-sector conversations that inspire actionable change. To set the stage for those conversations to unfold, dozens of community leaders in Kamloops collaborated to set the overarching themes and related topics shown below that will be explored during CIL.
What can you expect?
Pre-event fact-finding activities will help you prepare for your lab experience. Pre-lab workshops and tours will also increase your understanding of community sustainability and, therefore, improve lab outcomes. Keynote presentations and walk-about table talks will then help prepare you for the final planning session, during which you’ll create action-maps to drive specific sustainability efforts in your home, organization, or community.
