On December 3, 2012, the CCE welcomed Joel Solomon, the President and CEO of Renewal Partners, to share his thoughts on a whole-system approach to social change. Joel was instrumental in establishing Tides Canada and the Hollyhock Institute, and has provided grants to 121 groups and invested in 70 enterprises in BC through Renewal and Renewal2. Joel’s work seeks to support the long-term sustainability of the local economy and to prove that holistic long-term change is possible within the non-profit, for-profit, and public service sectors.
A dialogue with John Honderich, Chair of Torstar’s Board of Directors, followed Joel’s presentation. Watch this talk to learn more about what has been achieved in British Columbia and to discuss a path towards greater sustainability in Toronto.
