Creating a better future for communities through research

Canadian Community Psychology Conference Site Visit

May 04, 2012

On Friday May 4th, CCBR will host a site visit for the Canadian Community Psychology Conference. The site visit will feature a facilitated interactive session amongst researchers, conference attendees, and steering committee members from one of CCBR's current projects, Independent Facilitation Sites Across Ontario Evaluation Project. Speakers include representatives from Facile Perth and a Community Psychology student from Wilfrid Laurier University.

The session will begin with an overview of CCBR's mission, history, and structure, demonstrating our vision of using research as a catalyst for social change. Participants will then explore the three building blocks of social innovation used at CCBR: knowledge production (gathering and analyzing information to inform social change), knowledge mobilization (sharing information), and community mobilization (building relationships among people to produce collective social action). Check back often as more information on the site visit be will be added soon.
