We will be encouraging #Act4SDGs, including inviting participants to join the Global Climate Strike kicking off following the event and we look forward to sharing some exciting upcoming projects and programs to further expand our Hub as a centre for our city and nation on action towards Agenda 2030.
Impact Hub Ottawa is a collaborative coworking space and community focused on inspiring, connecting, and enabling action for a more just and sustainable world. Part of a global network of 100 Impact Hubs and over 16,000 members globally.
Community Foundations of Canada was founded in 1992 to support and connect community foundations working across Canada. The “movement” of community foundations has since grown considerably. Today, more than 90% of Canadian communities have access to a community foundation. From coast to coast to coast, through grassroots relationships and bold coalitions, we work to create systems-level change on the issues that matter to Canadians.
