CIC Saskatoon: [Zoom Event] Catching the Excitement – Memories of Couchiching

June 26 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm EDT

For over eight decades, the Couchiching conferences stood out as perhaps the best example of citizen engagement through national in-person conferences discussing practical policy. Hosted by Couchiching Institute on Public Affairs (CIPA), and many taking place on the shores of Lake Couchiching near Orillia, Ontario, this relaxed environment drew citizens and practitioners from across society and around the world, bringing in the likes of Bill Davis, Stephane Dion, Jane Jacobs and Henry Kissinger.

As rumours abound of CIC returning this fall to hosting a national conference, it is valuable for us to look at the legacy of Couchiching –  how it started, the feel of the events, some of the conversations and the great memories – to hear of the excitement that comes from an in-person national event.

This event is hosted by CIC-Saskatoon as part of the People-Places-Things series. Looking forward to seeing you there!
