Event Description

A Panel on Social Entrepreneurship & Alternative Education
July 28th, Thursday, 6:00 - 8:00 PM
Groundswell Cafe & Learning Space | 566 Powell Street

We are thrilled to host a panel discussion on the transformative power of social entrepreneurship for the economy, the community and the unlikely entrepreneur. Join us as we discover the much needed role of EduAction in igniting a new economy.

EduAction is alternative education that is hands on, unique to the experiences of each person, and based in real experience. It provides a safe, personalized learning environment where it is OK to make mistakes, experiment and test ideas, and where learning happens by doing.

The experts on this panel will explore the critical relationship between education and economy through these topics:

*Creating Business from an Aboriginal Way of Life - Curtis Rattray, Founder of Edziza Trails - Aboriginal Adventure Tours

*Alternative & Progressive Education - Gilad Babchuk, Groundswell Co-founder & Mentor

*The need for and the Role of Social Enterprise - David LePage, Groundswell Senior Mentor & Facilitator

*Personal transformation through entrepreneurship - Maia Gibb, Groundswell Youth Program Manager | Founder, Dusting Divas

This panel event is FREE! RSVP
