The annual Healthy Communities Conference - Collaborative Partnerships Making Healthy Change Happen, opened on May 14 with Paul Born, from Tamarack, an Institute for Community Engagement, sharing his vision of ‘collective altruism’.
“Answers are so yesterday,” said Born. “We need to listen. We listen to engage people, people start to transform and suddenly we have change without fully understanding how we got there.” Born said community begins with stories. Over time trust grows. With trust we take care of one another. From that comes the energy to build reality from our dreams.
