Come join us, together as a community to make connections for building a renewable and resilient Slocan!

Slocan is Canada’s 5th municipality with a commitment to be completely renewable by 2050. How do we get there? What role will you play?

This interactive workshop will include a brief presentation about inspiring examples of resilient and renewable communities in Canada and internationally, followed by an interactive community visioning session with fun, hands-on activities for adults, youth and children (send a postcard from the future!) Lunch will be served.

Bring your ideas and positive energy to co-create our community’s future!
