Groundswell SocialS is a weekly event featuring local entrepreneurs, community activists, and professionals who are making real positive change on the ground in Vancouver and are eager to share their experience and insight with you.

Call it social enterprise, community building, social innovation, changemaking, meaningful work, professional development, or just kicking back with a beer and a room full of curious, smart, heart-centered doers (yes, this means YOU!) - come and find your community here.  And, get the tips, tricks, and stories that are creating the map to that better future, as we venture there.


       a new speaker, or set of speakers, will share their story and experience and engage in dialogue with attendees in a Q&A session.  Afterwards, the bar will remain open and you can stay - or come late and join us then! - for a casual, warm soiree where you can energize and grow the groundswell of social change together, with play and work.
