This working group is where the magic happens in order to expand our reach and engage the community in the great work of the working groups and projects, in order to build a strong network of organizations, people and businesses working towards a resilient community!
The mission of the community engagement working group is to engage the diverse communities of Guelph-Wellington in the Transition Guelph movement. We work towards:
- Forming collaborations and partnerships with individuals, communities and organizations that are working towards building a resilient community.
- Expanding our community connections to the diverse geographical regions of Guelph.
- Connecting with the diverse communities in Guelph to ensure that being a part of the transition towards a resilient community is accessible to everyone.
We are working towards our goals through many exciting activities and events including potlucks, community movie night, the Resilience Festival, Transition Streets, getting out to the fantastic community events that happen in Guelph and much more! Our goal is to connect with you, so wherever you are, we hope to be! Invite us to come out and speak at an event, or to just come and see what you and your community are doing. We want to know how we can support you in your efforts towards a resilient community!
How do I get involved?
If you love spreading the word in the community and engaging with many diverse people in your community, then this working group is for you! If you have a skill or network that you think you can contribute, please e-mail us as we are always looking for new ways to outreach to the community!
