Civic Governance and Innovation Certificate Program Overview

  • This event has passed.

In this webinar we’ll provide an overview of the University of the Fraser Valley’s

*NEW* Civic Governance and Innovation (CGI) Certificate program

Designed for employees of municipalities, regional districts, First Nations
governments, Improvement Districts, and supporting agencies, the Civic
Governance and Innovation (CGI) certificate program uses case study analysis
and applied projects to examine how local governments pursue innovation and
risk-taking.

Local governments will face big issues in the years coming, ranging from new
technology demands to climate change adaptation. To take on these challenges,
municipal employees, elected officials, and members of the public will need
to work together to share knowledge, take calculated risks, and effect change
through collaborative, cross-organizational processes.

The CGI certificate program, designed by sector experts, teaches techniques for
weighing evidence to aid decision-making and methods for analyzing ideas to
improve outcomes. Learners will explore how socio-demographic and economic
diversity influences public engagement and service delivery. Participants in the
program may also be engaging with your own organization’s employees
or with other regional governments to tackle these and other
questions.

Reverse Town Hall: First Nations to Government Knowledge Sharing

A Conversation on Indigenous and Traditional Knowledge

November 17, 2021
12:00 to 1:00 PST
Via Zoom
Register now: fnps.ca/event/reverse-townhall-firstnations-government/

#JoinUs for a discussion on Indigenous and Traditional Knowledge, with Dr. Christopher Horsethief from the Ktunaxa Nation and Colleen Hemphill, Chief Negotiator and member of the Gwa'sala-'Nakwaxda'xw Nations. Beyond the legislative obligation to incorporate Indigenous knowledge into decision-making processes within federal departments, there is a strong appetite to learn more about the many diverse Indigenous worldviews and practices and how to respectfully and meaningfully find a path to integrate western science and Indigenous knowledge. An important first step is listening directly to communities on how we work together and where to start.

In advance of the webinar, we invite you watch the 20-minute Ted Talk by Dr. Horsethief www.christopherhorsethief.com/presentations/ and a 36 minute documentary called Seven Days with the Chief www.christopherhorsethief.com/documentaries/.

This is a joint FNPSS – BCFC Secretariat event under the Strengthening Public Service Institutions Initiative.
