      What’s New in the Neighbourhood?

      The Abundant Communities Model of neighbourhood development, prototyped by Howard Lawrence and the City of Edmonton, is being adopted all over Canada and North America.

      Guests include:

      Meet John McKnight and Howard Lawrence, as well as early adopters from Edmonton, other parts of Canada and the United States to learn more about how this radical idea is taking hold.

      We expect participants from all over North America and there will be opportunities for networking. For background on this movement please check out NewScoop stories list below.

      Join us on May 16th, 2017 at 12:00 pm (MST) for a Zoomed conversation from your desk or office.

      NewScoop YYC is using Zoom, an online platform to host conversations, share stories and nurture communities to create the world we want.

      Zoom technology provides the infrastructure for both large and small group experiences.  It allows groups of up to 500 people to move from the large group to small groups of any size.

      In the large group, participants have a shared experience of teaching, conversation, story, performance, video or image.  While in the small group, participants experience the intimacy that supports adult learning and the growth of community.

      Participants are encouraged to take advantage of the unique experiences provided by both the large and small group platforms. There will be the possibility to opt in or opt out of small groups and to participate with audio and video or only audio. We look forward to seeing your lovely faces and hearing your contributions and reflections. 

      Login information will be forwarded prior to the event. An Orientation for new Zoom users will happen at 11:55. Please be logged in by then to learn how to get the most out of your Zoom experience.

      Registration is $10 for non-members.

      All Individual NewScoop members receive five (5) FREE Zoom Sessions.
