Themes and Objectives
The theme of C2UExpo 2015 is Citizen-Driven Policy: Strengthening Community Engagement for a Better World. Through this theme we hope to:
Provide participants with a unique opportunity to be inspired and energized by the successes of community-campus partnerships, community based research, and community service-learning;
- Build connections and share ideas through meaningful dialogue;
- Work in solidarity to build on the cumulative legacy of the Expo’s networks, partnerships, and projects throughout Canada and the world;
- Build momentum for policy solutions that help civil society organizations navigate the current environment, and more effectively assert their interests through policy development and engagement; and
- Strengthen the growing national movement to deepen community-campus engagement as universities and colleges seek to enhance their potential to contribute to the development of Canada and the public good.
