New Community Vitality Project Launched

This research project is a continuation from the first five-year Canada Research Chair in Sustainable Community Development (CRC) and is based on what we have learned from the first five years. Place matters deeply to Canadians, but we lack the ability to see the aggregate impacts of the scale of our activities, the meaning of limits and how to sustain critical biodiversity in our communities. How do communities become more vital in all these aspects?

What makes the difference between a community getting by and getting ahead, we believe it is something about vitality, which we are initially defining as the difference between thriving and merely striving.

Join us as we experiment, explore and engage in critical conversations about vitality over the next five years.
