On Wednesday March 2, 2016 Wellesley Institute invited partners, collaborators and colleagues to participate in a Wellesley Institute Lab. The objective of this exercise was to create the foundation for building a Toronto-based project, initiated by Wellesley Institute Senior Fellow Camille Orridge, that links services for people from birth to employment. This lab was also the first in an ongoing series of labs as this work unfolds. Our aim is to engage organizations, partners, and the public across the GTA in conversations about the Connected Communities work and what a Connected Communities project could look like in the GTA. Wellesley Institute works to improve health and health equity in the GTA and we believe that this can be done by building community capital and coordinating across sectors.
We were joined by Professor David Morris who shared his expertise regarding his Community Capital project in the UK.
