VITAL CAFÉ: CommUnITY CONVERSATIONS

VS 2018 - Sm File (13 Of 13)

In 2019, you're invited to toss the small talk and break into community conversations about the BIG issues affecting our community -- but in a worldwide context.

Inspired by the United Nation Sustainable Development Goals, and the Whistler Vital Signs results, the Community Foundation of Whistler is hosting Vital Cafés open to all community members. Each café starts with a brief opener to the topic and then there is an opportunity to break into small groups for faciliated conversation. Each topic weaves in the United Nation Sustainable Development Goals.
