To celebrate the completion of our Alberta focused Amazing Neighbourhoods: Engagement and Sustainability Planning Guide we are holding two FREE workshops for community associations, municipal staff and community groups. In this one day workshop, you will learn the fundamentals of sustainability and how to design a fun and meaningful process to engage residents, businesses and other groups to make your neighbourhood an amazing place to live work and play.
Over the past year, The Natural Step Canada, with support from an advisory panel, funders and sponsors, has developed and piloted a resource for community and neighbourhood associations, community groups and municipal governments entitled Amazing Neighbourhoods: Engagement and Sustainability Planning Guide.

The guide is specifically designed to help users achieve the following:

Design a fun and meaningful community engagement process,
Better understand the sustainability challenges and opportunities that face communities and neighbourhoods,
Create a new and comprehensive vision for your neighbourhood (Where are we going?)
Conduct a gap analysis of your neighbourhood (What are we currently doing right? What do we need to do to get to where we want to be?)
Explore different ways to collaborate with partners towards a common vision,
Align neighbourhood goals and objectives with broader City or Town sustainability plans, and
Create an amazing sustainable neighbourhood action plan.
