What is a Vital Cafe?

Inspired by the United Nation Sustainable Development Goals, the Community Foundation of Whistler is hosting regularly scheduled monthly Vital Cafés open to all community members through 2019.

Vital Cafés are scheduled for the 3rd Tuesday of each month. So, mark your calendars to check in on the theme - and join us if the topic inspires you.

Vital Cafés are meant to be intimate with 10 - 15 participants. Each café starts with a brief opener to the topic. For that opener, we will be partnering with local organizations that are already working toward the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

What are the UN'S Sustainable Development Goals?
