At the 2020 Annual General Meeting, CCEDNet's Board of Directors presented a preliminary Theory of Change that was being developed to guide the Network's strategy and actions. 

Based on feedback from members at the AGM and key partners, that Theory of Change has been refined and expanded over the last year.

Featuring lessons from the cooperative leadership certification program. Learn more and reserve your spot."For a strong and resourceful spring, attend to your facilitation and leadership!

Have you or your team been faced with: burnout, disconnect, lack of accountability, and frustrating meetings? Has this been all the harder with remote work and pandemic stress?

Join to take the energy of spring to turn these challenging realities into resourced and human-centered collaboration by facilitating with more:

  • Attunement to ourselves
  • Alignment and accountability in our team

  • Joyful, productive, relevant, and good meetings!
  • Meaningful cooperation

In this session, you’ll get tools, reframes, and guiding practices for confident cooperative facilitation (remote and in-person).

You’ll learn some key processes for human-centered and cooperative group practices that apply equally well in remote and in-person settings. You’ll leave with greater resources for yourself and your team to face the challenges we’ve all been experiencing and use those difficulties as catalysts for more meaningful and effective work.

Buy Social Canada is a social enterprise with a mission to advance and grow social procurement. We believe that the purchasing of goods and services, and major development and construction projects are much more than an economic transaction, much more than the construction of a physical structure, they are a means to build community capital, the foundation of a healthy community, contributing to a local community social and economic goals.
