Community Conversations

“One of the things we need to learn is that very great change starts from very small conversations, held among people who care.” - Margaret Wheatley

In Jasper, community members are invited to join the the Jasper Community Team. The Jasper Community Team comes together each month for a conversation about the community. At these Community Conversations, participants share information about social trends they are noticing. Then, the group problem-solves and provides mutual support in tackling these trends. Participants work together to come up with innovative, locally-driven solutions to social challenges that are identified. Anyone is invited to take part  and participants can come and go as their availability allows.

There are four Community Conversations each month and each focuses on a different age group:
1) Young Children (pre-natal to age 5) and their families
2) School-Age Children and their families
3) Adults
4) Older Adults/Seniors
