Programs

Our Goal

Our programming centres on the belief that the future requires a transformed economy that is dynamic, just, sustainable, and resilient. 

From our position within an academic institution, we acknowledge that we continue to benefit from oppressive systems. We desire to use this power we hold to challenge the status quo. We don’t have all the answers but believe a transformed economy will be built by community-led solutions and the redistribution of leadership.

To get there, we hold space for programs and processes to address deep-rooted societal challenges.

  • Social innovation lab expertise
  • Capacity building programs
  • Connecting community to pave the way for transformative ideas to create systemic change
