Workshop on Health and Well-Being
Thu Oct 24
Sands on Golden Lake
9 am to 4 pm

Researchers from Carleton University and the Free Range exchange program want to hear from people living in our communities about the challenges we face in regards to our health and well-being. With this Workshop, they're giving us the opportunity to be heard and to contribute to the research.

The goal is to "provide a space to discuss some of the major challenges in the region with respect to health and well-being". At the Workshop, there will be researchers not only from Canada, but also from Austria, Australia and Sweden, talking about similar experiences in the rural communities in their countries.

Coffee and lunch will be provided.

Participants will be asked for their stories and feedback in break-out "round table" sessions. From those discussions, main issues will be identified for health and well-being in our region and we'll work together in identifying paths forward.

At the end of the event, a summary and report will be developed. This will be made available to everyone who attended. It will also be circulated to relevant agencies or organizations.

If you're interested in participating, please RSVP to by October 21st.

Please come and have your say!
