A Vision of Sustainable Community Development captures the ideas and outcomes of the Community Research Connections program and approaches the social sciences of sustainable community development from both an informed and compassionate place. The video explores the dynamic relationship between place, limits, scale and diversity for Canadian communities and discusses the importance of reconciling the built and non-built environment. Humans struggle with the scale of our activities and limits to our growth, and we need to engage in deliberative dialogue to determine how to create the optimal environment for both people and the other species we share the world with.
Blending images and video footage of community and nature, this video constructs a picture of how we as humans can act now to approach a sustainable future. The video is posted and available on the CRC YouTube channel.
