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.

Past 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 have encouraged real listening and understanding of our aspirations and challenges. All of these initiatives have allowed us to see that leaders, agents of community change and inspired lives are all around us every day. 

Over the last few years, New Dawn Community Engagement has been involved in a number of initiatives including supporting the work of Community Cares, the CBRM Transportation Working Group, the Island Food Network and the creation of an Island Community Data Portal.
