Digital Dish: Stay Home. Stay Connected.

Businesses are re-opening and conversations are focusing on recovery, but how can we #BuildBackBetter, together?

As part of our Re:Action initiatives we’re launching a new phase of Digital Dish to crowdsource ideas on three issues facing our region related to COVID-19:

  1. How to help young adults and those early in their career to enter or re-enter the workforce, including those affected by layoffs; 
  2. How to support our mental wellbeing and combat loneliness; and
  3. How to build and maintain the trust in our communities and leaders that we’ll need to return to work and social life.

This is your chance to tell CivicAction how we can work collectively to build a stronger region in the weeks and months to come. We want to hear it all, from examples of initiatives that are already working in our communities to brand new ideas for action. 

To host your own Digital Dish, sign up using the form on this page. After registering, you can download our toolkit to help you set-up your online chat. The toolkit includes guiding questions for your conversation, digital platforms to use, and concrete examples of how you can continue to support your community.

Once you’re done your “dish,” share ideas and key takeaways from your conversation by reporting back to CivicAction. They will help inform our work on COVID-19 recovery moving forward. 

Help us #BuildBackBetterGTHA.
