A ChangeCamp event is a creative face-to-face gathering that is citizen-led, non-partisan and social web enabled. ChangeCamps bring together citizen change agents to answer questions like:

How can we work together to create our desired future?

ChangeCamp addresses the demand for a renewed relationship among citizens and between citizens and our civic institutions. We seek to create connections between people and their civic passions by using new tools of communication.

The ChangeCamp community is open to all. We hope to ignite a self-organizing movement for positive change in cities, towns and neighbourhoods across Canada.
