In working to develop a strategy to help grow Lunenburg County, we sent a survey out to our network and members of our community that have moved to the area. What better way to find out the decision making process for moving to Lunenburg County than to ask the actual people who have moved here.
We were fortunate enough to have 74 respondents (54 from Lunenburg County) to our survey. Below is a quick list of interesting results from the survey:
This survey was short and the sample size is relative but we were looking to gather information quickly as we continue to work through our focus on population growth in Lunenburg County. Respondents provided us with excellent and thoughtful answers to our questions. This information will inform us as we continue our work.
Taking Action: community tools to support youth, newcomers & innovation
Inspired Conversations is the Community Foundation of Nova Scotia’s annual initiative that brings together business leaders, community builders, and philanthropists from across the province to discuss the evolving role of philanthropy and the exciting opportunities it can create in rural communities.
This year we've teamed up with the Nebraska Community Foundation to learn from their unique and inspiring model that uses philanthropy as an effective tool for rural revitalization. It's the perfect time to start adapting some of these tools in Nova Scotia and we want you to share in the learning.
Join us for a webinar on August 23rd, 2016 @ 12:30pm (AST) you will hear from Jeff Yost, President & CEO of the Nebraska Community Foundation as he sets the stage for how community funds have sparked economic development, kept/attracted youth and dramatically changed even the smallest of communities in Nebraska. Register now to reserve your spot for this FREE Webinar.
This is the kick-off to our 2016 Inspired Conversations Series which continues in September with 3 community work-sessions and a panel discussion in Sydney, Antigonish and Lunenburg.
If you want to continue the discussion, join us in person on September 21st at the Mahone Bay Centre for a morning workshop. Reserve your seat today! It's going to be an inspiring conversation that you won't want to miss!
