Let’s discuss.

Jude - it’s about environment - the earth warming and the effects globally. Even something as a childhood opportunity to go sledding did not happen this winter because of no snow. Flooding, storms, volcanoes around the world are all pointing to us all working together to make a difference in our world. 

Mary Rose - Networking communities to help each other, offer support and comfort when needed. Also talking about connecting to new arrivals in community to make them feel settled and give a sense of belonging. 

Puneet - being friends is important. Let’s try to create more friendships, connecting people. 

Kevin - More employment opportunities for all abilities. What can we do as a community to help businesses with the transition of employees into the workforce? 

What about training centres that are more inclusive? 

Longer training for those that need it.
