Healthy Resilient Communities

Community Service Learning and Community Engagement Conference Call for Posters, Papers, Workshops and Storytelling Volunteer Canada, Canadian Alliance for Community Service-Learning, Algonquin College, and Community First: Impacts of Community Engagement are pleased to host the 2014 CSL and CE Conference. The conference theme will be to explore the contributions of community campus partnerships in supporting the development and maintenance of healthy resilient communities.  The conference will be held in Ottawa, May 28 to 30 2014.

Social, environmental, political, economic, and physical factors combine to support the development and maintenance of healthy resilient communities. Community resiliency is the ongoing ability of a community to work together, to identify their strengths and challenges, to mobilize their assets, and to work collectively to achieve their vision.

Community agencies and educational institutions working together contribute to healthy resilient community.  This Conference encourages participants to explore a wide range of issues related to research, curriculum design, and assessment of impact upon community partners, institutional support, community connections and partnerships, student development, and faculty or community partner motivation and development, with the goal of providing participants with perspectives of how we can facilitate healthy resilient communities. The conference focus will be to share research,  successes, and ideas for collaboration through multiple methods. We encourage joint academic/community submissions.

Please indicate whether you intend to present in English, French or bilingually.

We welcome your proposal, which should be submitted by e-mail to Victoria Calvert, Program Co-Chair, at VCalvert@mtroyal.ca  Deadline for submission of proposals: February 28, 2014 Your proposal or abstract should include: 1.
