Event Description

This is an invitation to action.

Join us at Cafe Deux Soleils on July 26th for an evening of great ideas about transforming the economy, and a path forward to make those ideas a reality.

We all feel it: that wellspring of energy for major change to the current economic system. It's welling up between us, and the tidal waves of development rushing towards our neighbourhoods. Right now, as tides are shifting around us, we need to come together and define that change as we see it and need it to be. Then we need a plan for action. That's what Groundswell is all about.

We're figuring out what real change - change that is substantial, not superficial - to the economic system looks like, and then working with young people to make it happen. We know the current economy is the product of all our collective actions, and we're working on ways to shift those actions in favour of greater justice, love and solidarity.

Space is limited so please RSVP!
