Together Shuswap workshop upcoming

Ongoing Together Shuswap initiative intended to enhance well-being of residents in region through collaboration and cooperation.

  • May. 27, 2015 8:00 p.m.

This year’s Together Shuswap, Moving Forward Together Workshop will be held at Quaaout Lodge, on the north shore of Little Shuswap Lake.

It will take place on Wednesday, June 10. Registration is at 8:30 a.m. and the workshop starts at 9 a.m.

The workshop series is offered and hosted annually by a partnership of Shuswap organizations and communities.

Its purpose is to bring the cultures, governments, sectors and community members of the region together for a day of education, celebration, sharing, exploration and action toward creating a better Shuswap for all of its people.

The workshop will be facilitated by Donnella Sellars, Fraser Basin Council and members of the Together Shuswap Steering Committee.

A special youth session will be incorporated into this year’s workshop. Because the importance of hearing from future leaders is recognized, youth will break out for two hours in the morning session to create a presentation for the rest of the participants after lunch. Then participants will break into small groups to engage with the youth and talk about their values and what opportunities they would like addressed.

Little Shuswap Lake Band Chief Oliver Arnouse will provide the welcome, while keynote speaker will be Adams Lake Indian Band Chief Robin Billy. He will speak about traditional knowledge and wisdom and how that is being integrated into  community/regional planning.

As has happened at previous workshops, “champion activities” are set up so those interested in particular areas can take action on them.
