We recently shared a journal entry on the nuance of a more holistic approach to networking, creating spaces where common ground is first found on a personal level...whereas, the usual introductions first include what you do for a living, swapping business cards, and even name dropping here and there. Blah!
What we love about the @wework co-working space is their ability to build relationally-driven work environments from the ground up...And now, they're popping up with installations and activations on the streets just to show you how; or, in this case, in public transportation...
On the surface of this installation, you see an image of a table that stands between the strangers sitting opposite each other...but, WeWork flips that image with scenery, so the table really brings them closer together. Case study point here: this unique experience makes space for easy introductions in one of the most mundane parts of our day, the commute. So you don't have to go far to test the @wework experience. Cleverly executed and far more interesting than what I get in my car on the 405!

A meeting last night to continue planning our next big project, which aims to put the power to develop la Gonave more solidly into the hands of the local population and local authorities. A locally-led strategic planning process that will produce a formal development plan for the commune of Anse-a-Galets (one of two municipalities that form La Gonave). Seen here is Philippe Fils-Aime of CEFCAD (far left), Roots of Development's Executive Director Chad Bissonnette and Field Director Lineda Paul (center), and Anse-a-Galets' "Depite" (Representative to Parliament) Micalerme Pierre (far right). Stay tuned for more details, as this exciting project unfolds. #local#knowledge#local#solutions#ownership#island#lagonave#Haiti#development#private#public#partnerships#pap#meeting
Great event tonight showcasing our blind veteran #artwork at #Sussex Eye Hospital.
Thanks to the lovely organisations who attended, our jovial artistic #veterans and accompanying staff and also to the #hospital staff and supportive local #MP Lloyd Russell Moyle. It was a great night of networking, storytelling and once again being shown the incredibly determined, creative ways our veterans discover life beyond sight loss.
We look forward to doing more with the #Brighton based hospital, to having more of the 1,700 eligible blind veterans referred to us and of discovering the positive impact the artwork has in its new home. .
Our get active staff are busy pre-testing at our 4 schools and ready to start programming. Southview @southview_cs is building capacity and physical literacy skills with our gaga ball pit! How fun is this? Thank you to the Community Foundation of Southeastern Alberta for your donation #getactiveisthebestpartofmyday#community#partnerships#physicalliteracy

"We need to equip citizens to hold governments and businesses accountable...We train citizens and provide tools to engage governments and businesses not only to address the current challenge but to prepare them to handle new issues in the future." Winrock's Steve Brunn, at Concordia Summit as part of Strategic Dialogue: Practicalities of Partnerships #Concordia17 .
Something's can never be erased or restarted, so be extremely careful on the words you used, your actions that you take or don't take, the time that you share or don't share as these are the things that can make or break the most genuine and lovable relationships...... #words#time#actions#love#relationships#partnerships#family
No poverty is the first goal of the 17 global Sustainable Development Goals that form the core values of Plennid. Become a Citizen in our Community (for FREE) and empower our Plennid – link in the description!
The SDGs are a bold commitment to finish what we started, and end poverty in all forms and dimensions by 2030. This involves targeting the most vulnerable, increasing access to basic resources and services, and supporting communities affected by conflict and climate-related disasters.
God blesses those who PATIENTLY endure. The test may be tough and the devil may be tempting you at a very high level, but know that God has a way out of it all. Stay the course and press on down the path God has laid out for you. You got this! #focus#faith#IamRatedR
