In Isolation information, PEGASIS

Being able to respond to shifting landscapes allows program interventions to be adapted so they can be more impactful and effective in reaching a collective goal.

The Edmonton Seniors Coordinating Council’s Seasonal Gathering and Conversation Cafe will shed some light on the importance of adaptability for community initiatives.

The event will feature the projects that make up the Pan-Edmonton Group Addressing Social Isolation of Seniors (PEGASIS) initiative. The organizations will share how their projects changed to respond to identified and evolving needs.

Representatives from the City of Edmonton will also discuss Edmonton’s proposal for the Smart Cities Challenge. The proposal focuses on how the City and all Edmontonians can create and nurture a resilient, livable and workable community that rises to the challenges we face today, provides our residents with a joyful experience and embraces the opportunities of tomorrow.
