Kitchener, Ontario 

Join ABCD faculty members Peter Block, Paul Born, Al Etmanski and John McKnight along with Vickie Cammack and Sherri Torjman for this national community building gathering. This gathering will welcome community builders from a diversity of sectors and our learning will be guided by lead thinkers, authors, and activists on the topic of exploring the programs and policies that deepen community.

Together, we will explore the emerging patterns, innovative programs and policy priorities that are needed to establish a supportive environment for citizen-led community change and can serve as a catalyst for system-wide innovation.
