Idea Jam + Ice Cream!

idea jam ice cream

Groundswell is excited to host this potluck event for incoming participants that will let them share great ideas with others who want to make change in this world and the community.

There are plenty of good ideas brewing – and we want to help realize them!

We are looking for ideas for projects, services or products that can be created by an individual or group with a positive social impact: from reducing waste, providing healthy, accessible food, fair trade, building spaces, sustainable homes... and everything in between!

Part of the cohort? 

We don’t just want to talk about great ideas, we want to put them into ACTION!


1 - Share your ideas in small groups – and listen to great ideas in the room.

2 - Get some feedback, give some feedback, find supporters, learn a little.

3 - Then, up to two ideas per group will be nominated to be presented to the whole room. Those ideas will get another round of feedback from our team of expert mentors and the audience.  

This can be your working idea / project for the Groundswell Social Venture program! 


Want to see what is simmering in people’s brains, waiting to be unleashed? Get your ticket (free or donate to support the movement!) and come on down to the Groundswell Cafe & Clubhouse on August 18th!

This event is designed for applicants and incoming participants of the September and January programs.  

Want in?

This is a casual, potluck event! Bring a favourite dish, snack, pica picas - or something you'd to share - we'll take care of the ice cream. :)
