Upcoming e-Dialogue
Challenges to Integrated Planning

Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation: Integrated Planning Series

Wednesday, October 26th from 9:00 am - 10:30 am PDT / 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EDT

What are the impediments to integrated planning across Canada? Generally, some of the major issues are breaking down the silos between researchers, practitioners, and policy makers. We also need to broaden the dialogue to include decision-makers, the community leaders, and other essential voices. This conversation will draw upon research outcomes from both the National Municipal Adaptation Project (NMAP) data and MC3 2.0: Meeting the Climate Change Challenge 11 case study communities.

Changing the Conversation

We develop meaning and purpose through sharing our stories and in conversations

Some believe we have yet to begin the necessary conversations, while others argue there have been ongoing discussions over many decades that have not been heard. Some stories, such as growth have become so dominant, they have eliminated space about other perspectives. Changing the conversation is about re-enlarging public space and re-engaging different generations in virtual real-time e-Dialogues.

This intergenerational space is an experimental opportunity to rethink and reframe modern day challenges relevant to Canadian communities, to co-create innovative and scalable solutions. Governed by the principles of Socratic dialogue, this space hosts virtual real-time e-Dialogues and lead virtual peer-to-peer learning exchanges. It is also a repository for learning, best practices, tools and methodologies—a collaborative space to join or start a conversation.
