VOICES 8: Fusion Halifax's "How Do I Stay?" Panel
May 26 17
This is VOICES, Stories of Change – a series of podcasts and interviews from Engage nova Scotia.
Fusion Halifax is a network of young professionals committed to fostering opportunities for connection, professional and community development.
On May 18th the group hosted a full house audience for a panel discussion dubbed “How Do I Stay?”.
What follows is an unedited recording from the event.
The event brought together 3 young professionals who shared their experiences living, making a living and choosing to remain living in the city, and the province.
While rural communities sometimes experience more severe or visible signs of out-migration of youth, cities like Halifax also wrestle with the evolving expectations, ambitions and conditions that attract and root young professionals to their home of choice.
Sharing stories like those featured on this panel will continue to be part of the VOICES series as Engage seeks to highlight the emerging new narrative of a changing Nova Scotia.
The first voice you’ll hear is Ali Breen of Fusion, the panel facilitator.
