Conference of good ideas – Project Lyttelton
4th August will see community leaders and not for profit managers from across the region come together at Living Springs conference centre on the Banks Peninsula. This ‘Open Space’ conference will seek to answer the following question:
“What is trying to emerge, what ideas do we have, what is exciting us, what actions are we doing to move us forward as a community/region/country and how can we enable all this to happen?”
Lottie Harris Manager at Project Lyttelton said “The last two years have been unprecedented in the challenges that they have brought to us in the Canterbury region, but despite this we keep hearing of so many amazing projects happening out there, of new exciting ideas emerging, we wanted a forum where we could share, hear about and explore these bold new ideas and a chance for those in the sector to network with one another, support one another and to plan for the future together.”
Event invitation follows:
We see you as important in the unfolding of our community/region/country’s future.
So we invite you to attend an Open Space event…
