In the summer of 2007, the Communities-based Research Laboratory (CBRL) at the University of Victoria conducted a participatory-based livelihood assessment of the binning community in Victoria, an initiative in collaboration with the University of British Columbia and funded by Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC).
The University of Victoria Community Green Map project (UVic-CGMP) will provide a participatory mapping and planning system, including learning and technical tools, to facilitate innovative and sustainable development at UVic and in the wider community.
The first phase of this project is being facilitated by the Office of Campus Planning and Sustainability and resulted in the creation of a digital mapping system and framework by May 2008.
