Why participate?

I have ideas and solutions

Innovation and productivity are the drivers of economic growth. They thrive where diverse networks of businesses, ideas, people and organizations interact; consider the Ideas Festival as the collision of the minds that instigates change.

I care about the future of Atlantic Canada

Atlantic Canada's aging demographic means young people need to increasingly take on positions of leadership in business and government. The need to collaborate has never been greater to build that critical mass required to attract foreign investment, build economies of scale and repatriate our talent.

The world is changing rapidly everyday

The rapid pace of economic and social change, including the rise of developing countries, is forcing us to more effectively stimulate, communicate and apply new ideas. Importantly, there is no consensus around which ideas should be used.

Pre and post Festival

21inc will be taking the lead role in heightening everyone’s awareness around the challenges and opportunities we face in Atlantic Canada. Not only will we host pre-festival events such as public dialogues  or luncheon conferences, but we will also post informative material on several topics that will be addressed during the Ideas Festival. Beyond the Festival, we will continue our public dialogues across Atlantic Canada to pursue the conversations. Our quarterly magazine, 21inc, will also devote a section to subject-related articles and report on the key initiatives’s progress that were instigated during our Proaction café.

I want to:
