      DemocracyXChange Summit

      DemocracyXChange is the annual summit for Canada’s emerging democracy sector to connect, learn and share. Rising to the global moment - Globally, the indicators are clear. We are in the midst of a democratic recession that may seem endless. But as we enter another federal election year, the opportunity to see this moment as ours to shape with a gathering focused on strengthening democracy and ground-up community change has never been more pressing. Bridging divides - In an age of polarization, now is the time to reach, connect and work across borders, political orientations, values and points of view. Connecting practitioners - From neighbourhood changemakers to thought leaders and national campaigners, DemocracyXChange is a meeting place for practitioners demonstrating the power of explicit engagement, technology and new ways of organizing to make change happen. DemocracyXChange was unlike any conference I have ever been to. Highlighting activism in the digital age through a wide variety of perspectives. I was blown away by the scale and caliber of the speakers. - Pat, 2017 January 25, 2019 Get an inside look at civic participation and action in real-life.
