Our goal is to activate the community with passion, ideas, and learning.

New Dawn Community Engagement and Education seeks to create the places and networks within which authentic participation, questioning and dialogue, as the basis for community building, can take place.

Offerings like IDEAS: Powered by Passion and Films for Change are invaluable to the processes of community conversation, development and visioning. Likewise, Conversation Cafés in communities across the CBRM encourage real listening and understanding of our aspirations and challenges.

In the coming years, various learning and discussion initiatives featuring leading-edge thinkers and practitioners in the fields of community change and social innovation offer new community capacity building opportunities. All of these initiatives allow us to see that leaders, agents of community change and inspired lives are all around us every day.
