Speakers: Layla Belmahi, Alena Ziuleva, Vanessa Sykes, Ramana Zanfongnon and Myriam Bérubé

Recent times of crisis have shown us once again that where we live matters. The power of place-based creative problem-solving has proven to be more effective in areas where long-standing multisector collaboration has prevailed. Montreal’s 30 roundtables are at the heart of the current recovery, acting as a catalyzer of social and economic vitality at the neighbourhood level, building an infrastructure for collective action.

Join us to learn more about Montreal’s experience from different stakeholders’ perspectives. Layla, Alena and Vanessa will share their learnings from the Neighbourhood Round Table model, their impact to solve complex issues and their hopes for how this place-based work can help rebuild our communities.
