NewScoop YYC is going to be an incubator space: September 1 – October 4, 2020!

Newscoop YYC will host  a Thirty Four Day Challenge  in alignment with the Season of Creation  and Climate Action Month hosted by Kairos .  Follow the blogs, e-news Instagram and Twitter to learn more.

Sarah Arthurs invites you into her journey of waking up to the splendour and quandaries of being alive on this beautiful planet at this point in history.

The Big Hope is to find others who are in the midst of a similar adventure and to find ways to say yes to the challenges and opportunities which are facing us.  Saying yes – through/ and in practises of  contemplation, community  and creation! There will be many opportunities to jump in and get connected . Stay Tuned!

What was NewScoop YYC?

NewScoop operated as a  new media platform telling stories that support a thriving Calgary from 2014 – 2018. This was our mandate.

  1. We are telling stories of what we want more of. We are actively seeking stories that reveal a Calgary that is thriving, sustainable and inclusive – driven by the courage and creativity of citizens and communities.
  2. We are telling stories with a shifted chronology. Our stories focus on the present and the future.  We are creating the opportunity for Calgarians to name and share their preferred futures.
  3. NewScoop YYC has a sustainable ownership and business model. We are a not for profit multi-stakeholder co-op.
    • NFP – no need to meet the financial agendas of absent shareholders
    • Multi-stakeholder – individual and organizational members from Calgary as well as the individuals who are doing the work (the worker members)
    • Co-op owned by members and governed democratically

Why a Co-op?

Co-ops are member-owned organizations — a time tested way to sustain the common good!

Our Charter

We get more of what we pay attention to.

We want to pay attention to economic and community development, which is collaborative, sustainable and local.

We will tell the stories of citizens, formal and informal communities, co-ops, social enterprises, local businesses and associations addressing the social and economic challenges of Calgary.
