This September join the Ontario Council for International Cooperation (OCIC) community for our Annual General Meeting (AGM) & Symposium 2022: ‘Global Stories of Change that Change Our Global Story’.
This year our AGM will be held virtually on September 22 and will include a formal business meeting with presentations on the governance, finance and operational aspects of our work over the past year, followed by presentations of key achievements and priorities ahead from three key Inter-Council Network (ICN) initiatives: the Fund for Innovation and Transformation (FIT) for small and medium-sized organizations (SMOs); the Spur Change knowledge sharing program for SMOs, educators and youth; and the ICN national research project on feminist, anti-racist and decolonial approaches to public engagement.
Our Symposium will be held in-person on September 27 – 28 on the traditional territory of the Huron Wendat and Petun First Nations, the Seneca, the Haudenosaunee, the Anishnaabe and the Mississaugas of the Credit River First Nation, at the Centre for Social Innovation – Spadina, in downtown Toronto. Recognizing the unique experiences and power that each of us carries to make positive and systemic change, this Symposium will be a space to learn from global stories of change told from diverse perspectives and with various innovative mediums and approaches, and to be inspired in your ongoing work to change our collective story for good.
Building upon sectoral and Council efforts to advance decolonized, anti-racist, community-led approaches and ‘localized’ leadership, action and innovation, these events will provide curated, facilitated opportunities for participants to make connections, build relationships, spotlight initiatives, and plan for the future together.
Don’t miss your opportunity to convene with inspiring thought leaders, practitioners, activists, creatives and influencers in all or a part of our program. Representatives from civil society organizations, including those from SMOs, grassroots and community-led initiatives, and youth are encouraged to join us.
Our Symposium numbers are limited, so early registration is key! Click here for further details and to register.
