Interested in building healthy communities?

Tamarack's Cities Deepening Community, in partnership with the City of Edmonton, is excited to announce a three-day learning opportunity, ABCD: Healthy Neighbourhoods, Healthy Cities in Edmonton, Canada. We will bring together over 250 community and neighbourhood development practitioners to explore the use of Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) and explore leading neighbourhood revitalizing techniques.

The workshop will feature masterclasses led by world-renowned thought leaders in the field and the opportunity for learners to earn a master’s certificate in either ABCD or Neighbourhood revitalization. This will be highly participatory and will include small and large group conversations.

Who should attend?

In the spirit of ABCD, this workshop is open to everyone. We will learn together, enjoy a sense of community, and explore the gifts we each bring to community life. Professionals working in neighbourhood development, community building and community health will find this workshop indispensable. ABCD is considered a core practice and is recognized around the world as essential knowledge for anyone working to improve their communities.
