Networks and coalitions can play an important role in fostering social innovation. When used well, they help diverse changemakers bring their unique perspectives and efforts together to better understand and address complex problems.

In this episode, we hear from three changemakers within a province-wide coalition called ECCA (Early Childhood Coalitions of Alberta). We turned over the mic to Janice Kraemer, one of ECCA’s coalition Provincial Liaisons. Janice summarized how ECCA’s model works, and invited two local coalition leaders, Adrienne Sprecker and Debbie-Layne Macleod, to reflect with her on how their coalitions have evolved and what they’ve learned along the way.

Each Coalition within ECCA has a unique story and way of approaching their work. You can find information and contact information for your local coalition on ECCA’s website ( Connect with them - they'd love to hear from you!
