Membertou Trade and Convention Centre
Cape Breton, NS
The Community Sector Council of Nova Scotia, along with numerous partners, will be hosting a 250-delegate conference bringing together the business, community, education, and government sectors at the Membertou Trade and Convention Centre on October 3-4, 2017. This conference, “Many Hands, Many Voices: Working Together for Stronger Communities,” will be at once a celebration of cross-sectoral collaboration, a skill-building and learning event, and an opportunity to develop projects and collaborations in an action focused manner. The conference aims to build cross-sectoral capacity to collaborate and build stronger communities for collective action.
It will build skills and capacity in the areas of economic development, engagement, entrepreneurship, social enterprise, policy and legislation, inclusion and diversity, building trust and working with different perspectives, turning conflict into opportunity, and building trust. The conference will create opportunities for collaborations to flourish. It will culminate in a shared vision of the legacy we want for the future of Nova Scotia.
A defining feature of the conference is the power of story – the stories we tell, and those we don’t tell. This event will showcase the collaborations that have made a difference in Nova Scotia’s development.
