SAVE THE DATE: Community Engagement Day 2017 is happening on and around Thursday, September 28th!
Community Engagement Day (CED) is an annual project at SEDE that aims to recognize and be a spark for new efforts connecting McGill to Montréal neighbourhoods, groups and social purpose organizations. CED is meant to serve as an entry point, celebration, and resource for a broader culture of community engagement at McGill.
Between 30 to 40 group volunteer activities will occur on campus and around the city over a period of two to three days. These activities highlight some form of collaboration between the University and a Montréal community organization. Students, staff, faculty and alumni are encouraged to participate in these activities and the facilitated discussions that immediately follow. Through action and reflection, CED participants learn about diverse societal issues being addresed by our Montréal communities while doing something to support the work being done during CED and hopefully beyond the event. Activities address immediate community needs and take the form of public discussions, walking tours, urban gardening, workshops, clean-ups, and more.
How to participate in CED:
- Students: Organize a project with a student group you are involved with
- Faculty: sign-up your class to participate in a choice of CED projects
- Staff: encourage your staff and co-workers to sign-up for a group or individual project
- Students, Staff & Faculty: become a CED Project Developer or Facilitator
- For everyone (students, staff, faculty, alumni, and Montréal community members):
