Young Adults of Burlington – Let’s start #ChatWithRick
What is important to you?
Since I became Mayor, I’ve hosted an engagement and speaker series called “Inspire Burlington” to explore ideas, solutions and investigate ways to shift perspectives on issues effecting our community. New this June, I’m excited to be hosting a new-format Inspire event – Inspire Burlington: Millennial Voices.
I am often inspired by the creativity, innovation, energy and entrepreneurship of young adults who are starting businesses, launching their careers and inspiring younger generations. You are an integral part of our community.
I want to hear more from you – the young adults of Burlington – who live here, work here, study here, and contribute to our community. We are laying the foundation for future generations to build upon and we need your input.
Step 1 ) Join me in an online dialogue on Facebook and Twitter by using #ChatWithRick
Share your ideas. Have your say. Let’s talk about what’s important online.
Step 2) Come out on June 25
Your tweets and comments #ChatWithRick will help us to generate a conversation for a very special Inspire Burlington event at the Burlington Hive where we will get together for an interactive, collaborative conversation.
All are welcome but space will be limited so please register now for the focus group on June 25.
So let’s start the conversation online and understand what we need to be talking about in #BurlON.
#ChatWithRick so that your diverse and informed points of view can help me and Council make decisions that are right for the future of our community, our city and you.
“When it comes to cities, it’s your ideas that will drive change, your talent that will make it happen. Your creativity will generate economic growth and enable the development of cities.” ~ Dennis Walsh & Glen Hiemstra, Millennial City – How a New Generation Can Save the Future.
