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

Community members are invited to join the the Jasper Community Team to help Jasper move from good to better. The Jasper Community Team comes together each week for a conversation. At these Community Conversations, participants share information about social trends they are noticing. 

The group then problem-solves and provides mutual support in tackling these trends. Participants work together to come up with innovative, locally-driven solutions to the social challenges that are identified. 

Anyone is invited to take part and participants can come and go as their availability allows.
