Harris Centre Northern Peninsula Regional Workshop
Are you living on the Northern Peninsula and interested in your region's development?
Or, are you faculty, staff or a student at Memorial University who would like to strengthen Memorial's presence and make a difference in the lives of people on the Northern Peninsula?
If so, consider attending the Harris Centre's Northern Peninsula Regional Workshop on December 6th from 8:30am-2:30pm at the St. Anthony Lions Club.
The following themes have been developed with a local planning committee. While we may not be able to address all of the issues or questions, the workshop will provide a forum to generate ideas on how they might be explored.
Assessing and advancing local infrastructure: What is the status of current infrastructure (transportation, communications, drinking water, marine, health, education, recreation, etc.)? What knowledge and resources are needed to sustain and advance community and regional infrastructure into the future?
Promoting regional collaboration: How can separate communities work together to plan and share resources for the benefit of the region? Can communities further cooperate in the planning and delivery of services? Are there more ways to build capacity on a regional, rather than community level?
Fostering business development and entrepreneurship: What is the role of business in the region, and how can individuals invest in ventures that will create benefits for themselves as well as others? What are examples of successful businesses, and what opportunities exist in various sectors? How can entrepreneurship be encouraged?
The event will include a Memorial Presents Public Forum on entrepreneurship, held from 7:00-9:00pm on December 5th. More details are available here.
Please pass this on to anyone else who may be interested!
The registration deadline is December 2nd.
Workshop registration is free and breakfast and lunch will be provided by the Harris Centre.
