Vivo is a charity based in Calgary that aims to contribute to making Canadians making healthier choices. It has grown to offer a fitness centre, pool complex, gymnasiums, climbing wall, ice rinks, public library, sports medicine clinic and café, plus a wide variety of programs and services for all ages and abilities. But, in an issue as far reaching and important as health, they are seeking new opportunities to create large scale impact. This is why they wanted to participate in the Explore and Experiment workshop series, because making healthy choices  a part of Canadians’ everyday life is a complex issue.


Learning Circle 2017

On March 29th Youth CI held its second Learning Circle at Foundation House in Toronto. The learning circle practice comes from Indigenous traditions and is grounded in the value of honouring the collective wisdom of the members of the group present. The goal of the Youth CI Learning Circle was to create a space that allowed participants to drive their own learning and discussions about their experience leading Collective Impact projects, as well as provide an opportunity to learn about each other’s work.
