Jan 13 Brown Bag Lunch
Join us at 12:00 PM on January 13, 2022, for a Brown Bag Lunch on Sustainable Futures and Community Assets with Cooperative Biblioterre.
We’ll explore the sharing economy, ecosystem restoration, biodiversity protection, climate change mitigation and adaptation, regenerative food production, affordable natural housing, and the social determinants of health through a dialogue with this unique Quebec-based cooperative.
Biblioterre is a land-based cooperative located in La Pêche, Quebec. In this time of climate crisis, they aspire to bring people together to build a community that centers generative futures and demonstrates ecological sustainability, Anti-racism/Anti-oppression as well as Indigenous Sovereignty.
Officially launched in 2020, Biblioterre members are currently building relationships with each other and with the more than 700 acres of Land where Biblioterre sits, as well as developing projects centering around a sharing economy, ecosystem restoration, biodiversity protection, climate change mitigation and adaptation, regenerative food production, affordable natural housing, and the social determinants of health.
In this session you will:
– Learn about the history of the cooperative and the forces that drive our work
– Be introduced to sociocracy, the governance model that we use
– Receive a snapshot of some of our activities and practical lessons learned to-date
– Be invited to learn more and get involved
Biblioterre is excited to share their story with fellow social innovation and community transformation practitioners. Please join the members of Biblioterre in a conversation about how projects like ours can be part of creating a more just and sustainable world!
The conference will be hosted in English and translated in French simultaneously. This event is organized by the Atelier d’innovation sociale Mauril-Bélanger in collaboration with Impact Hub Ottawa as part of a series of webinars born from the Ottawa Bilingual Activation project.
