Examples of community visioning
It is important to contextualize the work of the SCD visioning exercises with respect to previous sustainability projects in Canada. A compilation of initiatives that have used visioning or similar participatory methods at the community scale allows for a more broad scope of our representation of Canadians’ desired visions. Citizens across Canada have engaged in envisioning ideal futures for their communities, and many Canadian cities and municipalities have used community visioning as a tool in sustainable development planning. A compendium of visions created over the last fifteen years from a range of geographic areas and community sizes will allow identification of commonalities and potentially a shared vision for the future of Canada. This review of prior work is currently in progress and will serve to inform and support the results of SCD visioning exercises.
