Vibrant, diverse partnerships and close collaboration are fundamental to Re-Code’s approach because offering a variety of perspectives and practices increases the likelihood of achieving our goals.

Why Collaborate?

Re-Code values diverse perspectives and collaborations. We invite partners to co-design programs and implement activities. The complex nature of our problems means that no individual or institution can solve them alone. Fortunately, the interplay of different ideas and perspectives fuels creativity. We are smarter, stronger, and more effective together.

The national community of practice that we were introduced to, the support and advocacy from the Re-Code team over the years, and the friendships developed are priceless contributions to our New Brunswick ecosystem. We will be profoundly grateful for these as we continue on this journey together.

We are officially the first Canadian Community College to become a changemaker campus! This COULD NOT have been achieved without the drive, innovative visioning, and funding provided to us from Re-Code.

Georgian College

It was an invitation to a conversation, and to an uncertain but potential-filled national project... Re-Code has fomented a community of practice that simply did not exist before.
