Advancing social transformation through sharing and exchange

The SHIFT Learning Community is composed of diverse individuals from across Concordia and the greater Montreal who:

  • Drive work within their neighbourhood, community, or institution towards justice, equity, and sustainability;
  • Want to learn from others about how to increase the socially transformative impact of their work;
  • Want to contribute to collective learning about how community-scale initiatives can bring about systems-level change.

All members of project teams that receive funding from SHIFT are invited to join the SHIFT Learning Community.

SHIFT regularly hosts networking, relationship-building and skill-sharing events for members of the Learning Community to connect. We also partner with experts within the SHIFT network to offer workshops on specific topics of interest to our members.
