Sustainability for Breakfast - Sustainable local economies

For our last breakfast event of the year and in anticipation of the holiday shopping season, the November theme is sustainable local economies, hosted by Momentum.

We'll be hearing from three experts in community economic development as follows:

• Philip Lozano, Entrepreneurial Support Services Facilitator & Community Economic Development Facilitator at Momentum, will talk about the importance of small business in the role of communities and local economies. He'll share some of the interesting work that is currently being done by Momentum around business development and community economic development.

• Raelene Noti, Skills Training Manager at Momentum, will talk about sustainable economies, collaboration, and resilience. She'll share with us how business, government, Momentum, SAIT and a special group of participants partnered to make a difference through Momentum’s Green Building pre-apprenticeship program.

• Christine Bennett and Heather White, from The City of Calgary's Neighbourhood Services, will tell us about the work that's being done as part of the Strong Neighbourhood Initiative.

Doors open at 7:30 am. Breakfast and networking until 8:00 am. Presentations until 8:45 am followed by Q&A and general announcements.

Payment is required at the time of your RSVP and is $7 per person. There will be a limited number of spaces at the door for those wishing to pay by Calgary Dollars.

    Coming right after the River Cafe was challenging from a culinary point of view, but I feel a simple breakfast is great - none of us is starving. Like the River Cafe, it's wonderful to showcase the work and efforts of sustainability collaborators.

    Awesome meetup! Thanks so much to Momentum! Really, really appreciated the attention to hosting a very low waste event, particularly by using real mugs! Way to practice what we all preach!
