Vital Conversations




We are hosting Community Conversations in your area – and you’re invited!

What makes your community a great place to live? What concerns do you have? What are the priorities to improve? How can we foster a sense of belonging and social connections among residents?

The Community Foundation of the South Okanagan Similkameen is hosting Community Conversations in the South Okanagan | Similkameen to help local people explore these questions and more. This is your chance to connect with your neighbours and organizations, and contribute ideas for making your community an even better place to live.

Our Community Conversations will build on the findings from the South Okanagan 2015 Vital Signs and Vancouver Foundation’s 2016 provincial Vital Signs report. Through small table discussions, you will have the opportunity to share what matters to you in your community; tell the stories of what you or others are doing to enrich your community; and share your thoughts on successes and opportunities for improvement.
