The Legacy Project is a Toronto-based systems research, education, and innovation group. Two decades of research and development have led to 7-Generation GTB. We're using intergenerational and place-based dynamics for social regeneration (generations in community) and ecological regeneration (community in bioregion). We're interconnecting people, projects, and places to each other for shared purpose; facilitating collective learning for all ages; fostering collaborations for meaningful systemic impact; and creating parallel processes and structures that nurture community resilience and planetary regeneration.


We have several upcoming sessions and learning opportunities; check back to see new postings. You can also arrange a visit to The Cedars, which is the main site for the GTB Bioregional Learning Center. Here are all our current free events:

GTB Bioregional Eco Market
For: All ages, families
Saturday, May 11, open 1:00-5:00 pm
Markham Museum, Transportation Hall
9350 Markham Rd, Markham, ON L3P 3J3

This is the first market that will have offerings from across the GTB. Plus, with Mother's Day the next day, you can "Celebrate Mother Earth and All Mothers." There will be unique products from local farms and artisans, as well as hands-on eco activities. When you arrive, you'll receive a Market Passport to "collect stories." Each table will have a storyteller, and the more stories you collect, the more gifts you earn. Get your free tickets.

Elderhood to Ancestorhood with Dr. Peter Whitehouse

To help you Be An Elder and think like an ancestor, this session features Dr. Peter Whitehouse, Founder of The Intergenerational School in Cleveland, OH. The Cleveland area is also organizing bioregionally, and this is an opportunity for bioregions to learn from each other. If you're interested in being included on the invitation list, e-mail us.

Embodying Our Place
For: All
TBA, virtual session

Where do you live? In the GTB! How can we better understand and feel into our place, the Greater Tkaronto Bioregion? Seeing and speaking for our local land, rivers, and lakes brings a powerful new perspective to activities. It helps us see beyond our own life story into the story of lifetimes across generations, in a complex ecological, cultural, and historical context. If you're interested in being included on the invitation list, e-mail us.

Note that in-person events will take place in a well-ventilated space and all those in attendance will be encouraged to wear a mask to protect everyone participating.

There is no cost to attend any of these events.
