Fostering Collaboration III Workshop - May 16 & 17 8:30am - 4pm

FC 3

Building on the work that has been done in the previous 2 Fostering Collaboration workshops, Summit 3: "Co-creating a Plan to Move Forward" will emphasize the creation of a plan, including Summit 2's priority areas and high leverage actions, identified by issue-driven action groups.

About the Fostering Collaboration Series
In the wake of the wildfires, the need for increasing collaboration amongst the 25+ committees was identified. Building on the work of Social Prosperity and the Wood Buffalo Strategy Roadmap, the sessions aim to develop a greater understanding of Collective Impact as a framework to support the work underway towards wildfire recovery.
The Fostering Collaboration series provides an opportunity for participants working within recovery, to step back and view the collective work being done and assess the current situation within our community. It will allow us to revisit and create a better shared understanding of needs and issues and identify opportunities for greater synergy and collaboration.
