For this second facilitated meeting, our plan (as time permits) is to:
Connect. Get to know each other and share our personal peace passions for this Moncton initiative
Envision the outcomes and impacts that we would want to create together
Define a shared purpose for this group
Determine how we will lead this initiative - Our shared values, behaviors and agreements
Consider the community stakeholders we wish to engage and collaborate with
Determine Next Steps
As an outcome for this meeting, we will deepen our clarity about who we are and where we are going with this initiative and get a sense of how each of us can contribute through our knowledge, talents, connections and resources. You will come away with an experience of having made some deeper connections with like-minded, like-hearted people.
The format of the meeting will be facilitated, interactive discussions and reflection in small groups and in the larger group. We expect anywhere from 18 to 35 community leaders like yourself to be involved.
To prepare for the meeting you are invited to reflect on what you would like to achieve through this group. If we were to make a significant difference for peace in Greater Moncton, what would that look like? Sound like? Feel like? What is your vision of the outcomes that we might achieve? Who would be involved or impacted by the experience?
