Mid May 2019, 50 Albertan changemakers and social innovators gathered in Edmonton at the Skills Society Action Lab. We shared stories and insights from our work in different communities and sectors across the province. We heard patterns about systems change from Ashoka Canada’s network, and learned how to nominate Albertan changemakers to become Ashoka fellows. And we shared updates and contributed ideas to support the ongoing evolution of ABSI Connect and Social Innovation Canada.
