History & Hope: Celebrating 20 Years of CCEDNet

January 30 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

- FREE
This webinar launches CCEDNet’s 20th anniversary celebration with a toast to some of the people who helped build the Network and an exploration of the past, present, and future of community economic development. Special guests: Stewart Perry & Victoria Morris.

2019 marks CCEDNet’s 20th anniversary, but the movement for fair and inclusive economies stretches back much further…

Stewart Perry is one of the pioneers of community economic development, and also CCEDNet’s first honorary lifetime member. Stewart was part of the US Office of Economic Opportunity and helped create the first federal CED support program nearly 50 years ago.

In this celebratory kickoff of CCEDNet’s 20th anniversary year, we’ll look back with Stewart at the origins of CED, its emergence and growth and current challenges and opportunities.

Then we’ll open up the conversation to some of the many other people who have played a role in creating and building CCEDNet over the last 20 years.  Please join us (with a webcam enabled device if possible!) to share your favourite memories, reconnect with friends, and raise a toast to all those who have contributed to the movement we know today.
