Our world is facing challenges, from climate change to food security; from loss of indigenous knowledge to the disappearance of agricultural land.
How can individual voices be heard in an increasingly globalized world? How can we mobilize community assets and energy to contribute to societal well-being and to be a creative force for innovation? How can knowledge be shared between different groups – such as universities and their local and national communities?
Our vision is the engagement of citizens in the creation of healthy, vibrant and sustainable communities. Our mission is to facilitate processes for community engagement, student learning, globally-relevant research, sustainable community development and planning through participatory community and green mapping.
