Objective: Engage community
members in conversations to connect, communicate and collaborate and build community. (Use Appreciate Inquiry methods to facilitate
questions and participation from audience)
Community Hub was created to be a catalyst for conversation, collaboration, civic action and innovation. With that in mind,
we aim to inspire and champion other’s ideas and causes through compassionate community meetings where change-makers
can share their causes with others to foster connections and collaboration. We aim to see the world from a framework of what
is working, seeking common ground asking: “how can we help you achieve your goals and dreams?”
