PLACE Dialogues



The PLACE Dialogues is an initiative of Memorial University researchers and community partners from across Newfoundland and Labrador.

The Centre for Social Enterprise has partnered on the PLACE Dialogues since 2018. The event connects community leaders, entrepreneurs, policymakers and academics to discuss challenges and opportunities for rural development while building a provincial, cross-sector network.

The lessons learned have helped create the PLACE Framework of community resilience, which provides five key principles meant to honour the love of community that highly motivated community leaders show daily.
