ABOUT

 

The MAYBE Story

“Maybe” is a podcast series inspired by individuals who are tackling critical issues and challenges in communities across Canada. Specifically, it’s about people who have participated in a very special program called Getting to Maybe ~ A Social Innovation Residency. The residency program happens annually at Banff Centre, situated on the slopes of Sleeping Buffalo Mountain in the beautiful Rockies. 

We wanted to tell the stories of the work these amazing people are doing to address urgent social and environmental issues – they are inspiring system entrepreneurs who are dedicated to working with others to make change that might seem impossible, possible!

Our hope is that these stories are encouraging, illuminating, and useful to the collective efforts of the many, many individuals and organizations who work to make our families, our communities, our countries and our planet more just, caring, healthy and resilient.
