‘Better, healthier future’ to be discussed at Community Listening Event in Comox Saturday

After many local community groups have endured 18 months of zoom meetings, an upcoming Community Listening Event will be a welcomed opportunity for organizations and volunteers to see and hear from each other in person.

“We are gathering as many groups as possible in one place who are working towards creating a better, healthier future for our community,” said event organizer and Comox family physician Dr. Jonathan Kerr.

“We often feel we are working in our own silos. It will be an affirming experience to see all of the interconnected pieces that are necessary to have a healthy community, healthy people, and a healthy environment.”

This free community gathering is being held on Saturday, Sept. 11, from 1-4 p,n, at the Rotary Stage in Filberg Park, Comox.

Everyone is welcome to attend and hear talks from local organizations and non-profits, browse information booths, catch some live music, and provide input on what issues matter most in our community.

“The response to this event has been outstanding. Over 20 local organizations have already signed up to participate,” noted Dr. Kerr.
