Public Involvement

People cannot achieve their full potential for health—physically, socially and mentally—unless they are able to participate in the decisions that impact their well-being. Thus, community involvement and participation are vital for the success of local health and well-being objectives.

Columbia Institute’s Centre for Civic Governance is pleased to announce that our 2019 Centre for Civic Governance Forum will take place in Harrison Hot Springs from Friday, March 29 to Saturday, March 30.

At this special 26.5 hour event, which will take place under the banner of “Rising to the Challenge,” we aim to develop a deeper understanding of the issues shaping our times and to provide insights on how to build more inclusive, sustainable communities. There are also plenty of opportunities to network with colleagues!

The Canadian Rural Revitalization Foundation works to improve understanding of issues and opportunities that are of common interest to rural residents across Canada. Their members include rural leaders, rural organizations, development practitioners, government policy makers, researchers, students, and other stakeholders both in Canada and internationally.

The toolkit was designed to support (in particular smaller) towns in the UK and Ireland to prepare for change.  The compass model helps communities assess and then make plans to strengthen four aspects of resilience: healthy, engaged people; inclusive, creative culture; cross community links and a localized economy.

While the Intelligent Communities movement is largely focused on urban cities, the example of Mitchel, South Dakota on page 14 suggests rural communities can use information and communications technology to boost in-migration.
