Canadian FibreShed: Closing the Circle

Identifying the  threads and connections we can bring together

Our final conversation will begin by using the SWOT* assessment as a tool to understand the national fibreshed as we have identified from the conversation on the 10th. Then the majority of our time together will be as a circle, each participant invited to introduce themselves and share what their needs are, and what they can offer others towards building a more connected and vibrant fibreshed.

Closing: Anna leads us in thinking about what actions we can take as individuals, can we find our peers or those who can use our support to move certain areas of this work forward? How do we collectively leverage our skills and strengths?

 *SWOT: Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats 


This is the third of three in our free online conversation series The Canadian FibreShed – from regional to national; our history and future.
