In the next few months, Saguenéens and Jeannois will have the opportunity to comment on the future prospects of the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean Hub. A total of six co-creation meetings will be held across the territory to give the floor to citizens. Participants will have the opportunity to learn more about the digital entity that is the Hub in addition to participating in the development of it.
As a result of the 2015 Regional Economic Summit, the Regional Hub could be simply summed up as a resource for supporting innovative business projects and community projects. This network allows the pooling of human and technical resources as well as workspaces across the region.
Explaining the reason for the meeting of the digital regional resource created almost a year ago, the member of the implementation committee, Sébastien Harvey, presents this as “the key moment when stakeholders are invited to co-create”.
The six co-creation activities of this network, which has no physical place, are aimed at a broad public, including individuals, organizations, businesses and self-employed workers. Also, member of the implementation committee, Patrick Moisan invites everyone interested in innovation and regional development. Members of the Implementation Committee emphasize the importance of getting the advice, suggestions and insights of “people on the ground”.
Each day of co-creation will present the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean Hub in addition to mobilizing participants around a great reflection. Through workshops, participants will become acquainted with the “role of the actors and means of action of local organizations, the local cluster and the regional hub”.
The meetings will take place in each of the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean RCMs, Saguenay and Mashteuiatsh. The first event will be held on April 30th at Alma’s Blueberry Box.
The meetings of Alma, Roberval (May 7), Saguenay (May 14), Dolbeau-Mistassini (June 4), Bas-Saguenay and Mashteuiatsh will be followed by a major regional meeting. This will include discussing the governance of the Hub Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean with key people from each RCM.
