Embracing Emergence: Adaptive Leadership for Uncertain Times

This leadership retreat will offer frameworks, skills, and practices grounded in nature to develop and adapt as social change leaders.

We are at a powerful time in history that has highlighted inequities and changed the ways we work and build together. We have the unique opportunity to collectively take a step back, pause, and shift our systems with intention, creativity, and care for the whole.

Impact Hub is proud to offer a retreat to strengthen our community’s adaptive leadership skills in this time. This leadership retreat is rooted in adrienne maree brown’s “Emergent Strategy: Shaping Change, Changing Worlds”. Participants will be introduced to concepts of emergence and adaptive leadership. We will collectively explore how emergence can be applied in our work, and how we can integrate these strategies into our leadership practices.

We welcome both established and emerging leaders in the field of social change to participate.

The U.S. Election, Climate Change, and Canada: What’s Next?

How will the outcome of the US Election affect us and the growing need for action in the face of a climate crisis?

Anyone who recalls Jed Bartlett, the fictional U.S. president in the long-running TV series The West Wing, knows that “what’s next?” was his favourite question. And it’s exactly what will be on everyone’s minds on November 5, the Hub’s first Brown Bag Lunch after this year’s U.S. election. We may not have results by Thursday noon, but we’ll know what’s at stake — for the U.S., Canada, and the North American and global response to the climate crisis. We’ll dive into the details in this BBL!

Longtime Hubber Mitchell Beer is publisher of The Energy Mix, a free e-digest on climate change, energy, and carbon-free futures. He’s worked on climate change since 1997, clean energy since 1977. A proudest moment was building a wind turbine out of wooden stir sticks with his then-11-year-old daughter, and improv comedy practices are sometimes the best part of his week.

Brown Bag Lunches are Impact Hub Ottawa’s weekly lunch & learns led by Hubbers, for members and non-members alike. Topics vary each week, but you’re always sure to learn something new!

Can’t make it at 12 PM? Register and we’ll email you a recording of the presentation to watch at your convenience.

Ecomuseums: Activism through Community Curators

Ecomuseums are not your run of the mill museums. Learn how they can contribute to local communities!

What is an ecomuseum, and how is it different from museums? In this presentation, we will explore what are ecomuseums and their claims for this social innovation through ordinary members of public that draw on their own local heritage and experience and curate projects in service to society. Let’s learn how to combine the local nature perspectives to foster a sustainable community through this innovative creation!

With over a decade of experience in union activism, Christopher Gunter is an Assistant Professor at the Élisabeth-Bruyère School of Social Innovation and a member of the Cultural Policy Research Network.
