The next “Community Conversation” to be held in Hedley will feature Mike Lewis, author of the book, The Resilience Imperative, speaking this coming Friday about the pressing issue in much of rural B.C. of an ageing population, emptying towns as people move to urban centers, and possible strategies to reverse the tide.
Community Land Trusts have an extensive past in the U.S. and abroad as a way of rebuilding blighted areas of towns. Social Care co-operatives have a storied past in bridging the gap between the needs of the individuals and those serving them.
If you are interested in either of these topics, please attend either the lecture Friday, October 17 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Hedley Senior’s Center, or come to the workshop October 18 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Lunch will be included.
Both of these events are free to the public.
