Determining a Common Goal
We have just started an initiative called Community Conversations, which is an organic process of inviting residents of all positions, races and sectors to come together and create a common goal.
These conversations are centering on two main questions:
1. If all things were possible, what would you see in our region?
2. What assets do we currently have in our region?
Once we've got enough data, we'll have all the participants in for two more gatherings to determine what theme/cluster to focus on as a community, then choose a common goal within that theme/cluster.
We are facilitating this very exciting process and will make sure implementation and action take place once a common-goal has been reached by the community. This will create new relationships, understandings and more community spirit to our area. The first stone in creating a large ripple effect!
