Park People Vancouver Network Online Meetups
Once a quarter, this new regular meetup will bring together Greater Vancouver community group members, nonprofit organizations and city staff to meet, connect, and exchange on each other's work, successes, and challenges and learn valuable insights and information from Park People and our partners.
Each meetup will focus on a topic the Vancouver network has shown interest in discussing.
For the first-ever online meetup, we will discuss funding - including grant opportunities, common challenges, tips for success, and ideas for diversifying your funding sources.
