Supporting and learning from communities

The Seizing the Moment project brings together community-based organizations and post-secondary institutions across Canada for a series of conversations about pandemic challenges and strategies in communities. We also explore avenues for community-campus research, learning and creative partnerships to help mobilize just and sustainable ways forward. 

The Seizing the Moment workshop took place on May 25-26, 2021, with almost 400 participants registered to join our discussion about pandemic challenges and lessons learned in communities across the country.

The next step in the project is a series of post-workshop webinars over Summer/Fall 2021, as well as a Quebec-focused event planned for Fall 2021. For more information, contact Magda Goemans at info@ccecanada.ca.
