      2019 RECOVER Showcase

      The City of Edmonton invites you to join us for our second annual prototype showcase and networking event featuring the community members and prototypes improving Edmonton's urban wellness!  Drop by Allard Hall on Tuesday, October 22nd between 5:30pm and 7:30pm to see and hear how we've been working with residents, business owners, community groups, social agencies, and post secondaries to improve wellness for all Edmontonians by turning ideas for strengthening our communities into reality.  We'll be showcasing 12 different prototypes tested by the community, including Housing Doulas, a prototype drawing on peer support and doula models, exploring how lived-experience relational support models that may be applied in the housing supports context. There's also the Odd Job Squad, that explored gig-economy opportunities for casual and bundled jobs, and tried to answer the age-old question - which approach is better, digital or analog?  You’ll also have a chance to share your feedback on this year's projects, share some appetizers and mingle with the RECOVER team, other City of Edmonton staff, the incredible members of our prototype teams, as well as others in the innovation community. AGENDA 5:00 PM Doors Open & Networking 5:30 - 6:30 PM Prototype Showcase  6:30-7:30 PM Panel Conversation with Prototype Teams ABOUT RECOVER Recover is a key initiative for Edmonton City Council and administration.  Recover is being developed using a social innovation approach that engages many stakeholders as they understand how their individual efforts impact each other. It also provides opportunities to look for alignment and collective efforts for improving urban wellness. We are starting this work by focusing on 6 core neighbourhoods (Boyle Street, McCauley, Central McDougall, Queen Mary Park, Downtown and Strathcona)  and the social, physical and economic conditions and decisions that impact them. The longer-term intent is to develop a repeatable process for urban wellness planning across the city.  https://edmonton.ca/urbanwellness/ https://www.makesomethingedmonton.ca/recover/
