Work at CSI for the day with our new Lounge Pass!

Throwback Thursday: Ten years of social innovation!

We’re about to start a new decade, and we already have so many big dreams for it! But before we jump into 2020, we wanted to take a quick look back at the last ten years at CSI. There are countless stories to share, so no collection of photos could ever give a true picture of all that we’ve accomplished together over the last ten years. But here is a tiny sampling of some of our favourite memories:

We exist in a world with overlapping crises that we wake up and face everyday. And so the next generation of climate action must tell a different story, and reflect a different reality. A reality where climate investments meaningfully improve the lives of residents, where every community in the country feels connected to the work, where we acknowledge the stakes and get down to the hard work of building a world that breaks down the individualistic silos and shows how much better life could be.
