Neighbourhood Organizing for Inclusive Economies

Neighbourhood Organizing for Inclusive Economies

Free admission. Please register here on Eventbrite.


Who wins and who loses when capital investment and community improvement plans are directed at low-income neighbourhoods? Who benefits from neighbourhood renewal?

Is there a way to improve the civic infrastructure and commercial activity of a neighbourhood without driving up land values (and, thus, rents) and displacing residents?

How have other neighbourhoods in the country organized themselves to assure that municipalities and developers respond to the unique needs of their respective communities? How have other neighbourhoods avoided being 'used' as a means to increase profits or heighten the tax assessment base?

At this event, we ask: how can neighbourhood regeneration be undertaken inclusively? Speakers will share their experiences, perspectives, and stories of neighbourhoods who have organized and fought to assure that development serves everyone.
