Challenge for Change (C4C) is a not-for-profit organization that aims to use listening and the democratic power of media to strengthen relationships between Canadians and communities. C4C is a mash-up of a listening project and a community-engaged media project. We are creating opportunities for a broad range of Canadians across the country to talk—to listen—to one another. With permission, some of the conversations will be edited and crafted into audio and video stories that will be used to spark discussion and dialogue in communities.
