Name: Community Hubs as Resilience: Before, During & Post Crisis
Join this Civic Commons Catalyst Webinar to discuss the resiliency that community hubs inherently support in their communities, before, during and after crises. What is the role of the community hub now, amidst crises? What can they be doing? What have they already been doing to strengthen resiliency leading up to a crisis? And what do they represent in the vision of a stronger future afterwards?
Do you want to be part of the solution? Let's meet at 12 PM EST! Register for this free webinar here.
We offer various types of events
Idea Camps represent a series of regional events that bring together mid- and senior-level municipal staff and Indigenous leaders for peer-to-peer exchange and intensive instruction from experts to build capacity in the areas of open data, governance and public engagement.
Collision Days are match-making events in cities that connect emerging technology companies with community leaders. Through these events, start-ups will get the valuable feedback so critical in the early development stages, while community leaders will get the chance to preview the technologies under development that may help serve the needs of their residents.
Roundtable events bring together local municipal staff and Indigenous leaders in all regions of the country. Participants exchange key learnings and best practices about emerging trends, issues, technology-adoption strategies and smart city approaches, and create important connections with their peers in similar-sized communities.
Indigenous Community Roundtables
The Indigenous Community Roundtables will provide a convening space, programming and learning opportunities for Inuit, First Nations and Métis community leads, cross-sectoral advisors and innovators to learn, share and connect.
