What Would It Take for Ottawa to be

A Safe City?

A conversation series.

About Workshop

A city is its people. These conversations are an opportunity to meet in a safe space and discuss civic issues that are near and dear to our hearts. Bringing together people and institutions from across the city, we will explore “What Will It Take” to enhance and amplify the parts of our city that we are already proud of, and how to create more space for happier, healthier, smarter and safer quality of life for everyone.

Synapcity connects people who want to have a positive impact in the city, and as a third-party convener without political agenda, we can offer space and support to other organizations who work tirelessly in this great city and bring in the voices of the city’s people.

Workshop Details

Synapcity, in partnership with House of PainT present ‘What Would it Take for Ottawa to be a Safe City?’

What is a safe city? Imagine living in a city where everyone feels welcome and participates in its civic life. People all have a sense of belonging and are supportive of one another. Crime is almost unheard of and no one hates another person.

We are hosting a conversation to explore what we could do to make our city safer? Safety is a difficult topic for many and often is understood differently by different people. Yet everyone wants to feel safe. We want to discover actions we can take to make our city safer and ideas to explore further to ensure that everyone in our city feels safe.

Our event is a World Café style chat and participants will be hosted in six differently themed conversations about safety. Participants will share their thoughts and ideas with a table host, which will then be recorded.

By the end of the program, participants will have had a chance to share ideas and perspectives on every theme and will have been able to meet fellow Ottawans that are engaged in the city.

Coffee/Tea and breakfast is included with your registration. Please consider a donation to keep our programs inclusive.
