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.

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.
Continuing with our work on showing our research outcomes, we have just released another data visualization examining the themes of Place, Innovation, Resilience and Anticipatory Governance.
Our conversation on mental health will no longer take place today Friday, January 17th, and will be rescheduled for a future date. We will post the new date on the conversation's webpage in the near future.
We have just released a new video on CRC HEAD Talks. This video was a presentation made to the recent Spaces and Flows conference in Amsterdam, on November 23, 2013. Professor Ann Dale, Dr. Lenore Newman and Rob Newell explore what makes a place special, how people move through a space, what makes a person keep coming back again and again. The dynamic interplay of place, space, and time is examined through the video's imagery and flow.
Last month, the International Cooperative Alliance (ICA) held their annual conference in Cape Town. One the presentations at this conference included reporting on the results of a partnership project, between Community Research Connections and the Sustainability Solutions Group, that investigated the relationship between the cooperative model and sustainable development.
