The Spur Change national conference is a signature event to bring together Canadian small and medium organizations (SMOs), educators, and youth in the international cooperation sector.
To answer participants’ call for a space for deep, relationship-based exploration and peer knowledge sharing, this year, the 2023 annual conference was held as seven separate, smaller regional events. Each event, or “Spur Spark,” had its own main themes, programming and feel, but centered around the theme of People and Planet, in line with FIAP Action area 4: Environment and climate action.
This year’s report asks: What Constitutes an “Enabling Environment” for Canadian SMOs? Learn more from what others in the international cooperation sector had to say by checking out the report. See what the community thinks is working well in Canada and where improvements could be made.
