Joshua Smee

Community Sector Council NL
St. John’s, Newfoundland

Joshua Smee is a passionate community-builder in St. John’s, Newfoundland, where he works to make the city (and the province) a greener, more connected, more compassionate place.

At the Community Sector Council NL, his professional life is all about giving nonprofits the tools they need to thrive. As a volunteer, Josh works with the NL Sexual Assault Crisis and Prevention Centre and chairs the boards of the thriving St. John’s Farmers’ Market Cooperative and of Happy City St. John’s, which has spent the past five years pushing for more creative approaches to urban development. He is also part of a great team building St. John’s first carsharing cooperative.

After dialing back his day job and hitting the books, Josh is now finishing an MA that had him hitting the streets to do Canada’s first study on the way urban design affects our civic and social engagement.  It’s been a time!
