Exploring Pathways: Deep Energy and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reductions by 2050 in BC Communities was prepared through the MC3 project the behalf of BC Hydro. This report explores future energy and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions trajectories that achieve deep GHG emissions reductions and makes recommendations for policies that are required to achieve reduction targets.
A new case study has been released on the Ottawa Renewable Energy Co-operative.
We have just released Part V of the Solutions Agenda, a discussion on mental health.
Created through a partnership between the Community Research Connections program and students of Royal Roads University's Professional Communications program, this video was designed as an evocative expression of mental health in the context of community well-being. The video was produced as a part of the Solutions Agenda, specifically created to complement research done on the role of mental health in fostering community sustainability.
We have just released the Meta-Data Conceptual Relationships visualization, another exploration of the themes of Place, innovation, Resilience and Anticipatory Governance.
Two new resources have been released through the Network for Business Sustainability (NBS) on importance of and best practices for civic dialogue. The development of these publications was informed in part through the input of CRC’s principle investigator, and these reports discuss the role of dialogue in sustainability. The publications can be downloaded from their respective webpages:
We have recently released what we refer to as a conceptual frequency curve. This type of visualization was created for the MC3 project to identify the common concepts and ideas of the community case studies (and the research as a whole), allowing us to both examine over-arching themes and compare and contrast between the case studies.
We have just released a raindrop plot, a deeper exploration of the research outcomes from our climate adaptation and mitigation research, MC3 case study data. This visualization highlights key concepts that were developed through discussions among the MC3 interdisciplinary team, using the case study protocol and research outcomes to guide our analysis.
