Community Economies: Enough, For All, Forever

Pre-registration is now closed
But walk-ins are always welcome!

Come out and connect, learn, and celebrate together with our diverse planning team, amazing volunteers and sponsors, and over 500 participants commited to making a better world through community development and community economic development.

On this 10th anniversary we will explore our collective past and hopes for the future by focussing on the economic part of a holistic model of sustainability through the theme "Community Economies: Enough, For All, Forever".

Hear from internationally renowed author and activist Raj Patel, and choose from over 30 workshops facilitated by knowledgable presenters. Don't forget about the amazing, fully-catered lunch showcasing local food co-operatives and social enterprises!

An Evening With Raj Patel

Help us kick off the 2012 CD/CED Gathering on October 18 at the Ukrainian Labour Temple.
Join us for a discussion with Raj Patel, an award-winning writer (Stuffed and Starved, The Value of Nothing), activist, and academic. This will be a great opportunity to hear Raj speak about his work on global food systems, and how we can build more sustainable and equitable economic systems. Light refreshments will be provided, and Raj's books will also be available for purchase.
