Connect Toronto: Kensington is a new 'Community Exploration Prototype'
TSI Welcome is INFORMATION for travel - for Toronto - and the Institute
If INCLUSION is your passion - you need to be at the Toronto Summer Institute. It will be a gathering of about 130 'like minded' people from around the globe - who have heart, soul, commitment - and are struggling to figure out how to build a better world from their families, friends - for all of us. If that sounds a little like you - join us. Get connected, invigorated, renewed and recommitted. It's a pick-me-up for the soul.
Amazingly, almost three decades ago, a little summer institute was created to support families and nurture leadership. It was an outrageous idea with almost no funding and a small gaggle of committed 'visionaries'. Some things don't change very much.
This summer, the Toronto Summer Institute will hold it's 26th 'Institute' on July 7-12, 2012.. We missed a couple of years. But remarkably it continues. Our focus this year will not be 'the past' - but looking to the future. However, it is worth remembering that over these 27 years, people just like you have come from every continent (except Antarctica) to Toronto and Montreal, and returned home to 'make a difference' about inclusion in their families, communities, organizations and nations.
So if you are wondering about how to sort through the endless impending chaos and cutbacks, come and join us. We don't have solutions, but we do have great questions. And with like minded deep thinkers who will struggle and celebrate together - we will leave 'renewed' in our commitment, fresh with new perspectives, questions, approaches - and reaffirmed in fundamental values that strengthen us to move forward relentlessly.
The energy to keep us on track is the unrealized capacities and talents of people who are 'excluded', and need our partnership to lead us into a better future for all. They are ready, willing and able - if we choose to partner to build the futures we want - with them.
