SEPTEMBER 13-15, 2017 CALGARY, ALBERTA
Welcome! On behalf of the Canadian Community Economic Development Network, Thrive and the entire organizing team, thank you for joining us at EconoUs2017.
Over the next three days, we will both envision and experience an economy that works for all.
EconoUs2017’s campus-based approach will get you moving, exploring and interacting with one another and the local economy here in Calgary.
Be inspired by a heartfelt dialogue between Reconciliation Canada’s Chief Robert Joseph and social innovator Shaun Loney, learn with more than 60 change making presenters in over 30 workshops and plenaries, connect with over 350 community leaders, and enjoy local food, local tours, and local music as we celebrate the heart and soul of local economies and shared prosperity.
EconoUs2017 will be convening more than 380 delegates and community leaders from across Canada and abroad for three days of learning, connecting, and celebrating the heart and soul of local economies.
Using a campus based approach, EconoUs2017 will get delegates moving, exploring and interacting with the host city and each other. We’ll not just envision but experience an economy that works for all.
