Ideas of the Brave: thinkit

To turn ideas into reality, we need a brave approach, where all stakeholders -- public, institutional and private -- work together to advance our city's economy. Ideas of the Brave is an innovative stakeholder engagement program consisting of staff, council and citizen-led conversations. 

 

To participate, gather your friends, co-workers or neighbours to answer the questions in our thinkit. You can lead your own conversation, or request the participation of City of Kitchener staff or your ward councillor.
