Community Conversations – Wicked Problems
April 25 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
In February and March, different committed and passionate community members got together to discuss complex challenges happening in this region.
Join community members as we take a deeper look and work a bit more on these topics, utilizing tools from the MacEwan University Social Innovation Certification that some of our community members have been fortunate to learn!
The topics that were brought up last time (and are by no means the only ones that we can address) are:
Crime and Law Enforcement/ Addictions
Children, Youth and Families
Mental Health & Wellness
Poverty & Homelessness
What are Wicked Problems?
A wicked problem is a social or cultural problem that is difficult or impossible to solve. It tends to be complex and dependent on different factors or systems.
For example: Climate Change, Health, Income Disparity, Addictions and Mental Health, Literacy, Education and Learning, Sustainability, Justice.
