What We Know: Research and Insights on Guelph and Wellington

What We Know: Research and Insights on Guelph and Wellington

The Community Engaged Scholarship Institute hosted its third annual event on March 1st and 2nd, 2017 in Downtown Guelph. 'What We Know' brought together 49 posters featuring diverse research on Guelph and Wellington from community organizations, municipal staff, faculty and students. Attendees learned about feral cats, farmland loss, food waste, the wellbeing of children and more - all specific to the communities that they live, work and play in.

Opening remarks were delivered at the event opening by Lloyd Longfield, Member of Parliament for Guelph and Gwen Chapman, Dean of the College of Social and Applied Human Sciences at the University of Guelph. All presenters were available to discuss their posters during the opening; the posters were displayed in the Quebec Street Mall for the remainder of March 1st and 2nd, and enjoyed by a steady stream of visitors throughout both days.
