Change Camp Hamilton

Change Camp Hamilton is an event that happens every year which brings residents, post-secondary education institutions, community organizations, and the City of Hamilton together to talk about actions we can take to enhance Hamilton with a focus on community, partnerships, and collaboration.

This year, Change Camp 2017 is working in partnership with the Hamilton Community Foundation’s Neighbourhood Leadership Institute (NLI), to feature the theme of neighbourhoods where we will be focusing on a small number of project-specific workshops that connect to priorities identified within and across Hamilton neighbourhoods.

They are currently looking for ideas for community projects that connect to Hamilton neighbourhoods to discuss at Change Camp this September, and we would love to hear from folks in your neighbourhood. To learn more about the event and the requirements for project ideas, please visit their website by clicking here.
