Center for Indigenous Environmental Resources (CIER) Presents -
Comprehensive Community Planning (CCP): Getting Started Workshop

June 17-18, 2008

Comprehensive community planning is a community-based planning process that provides First Nations with an opportunity to set a path for the future of their community. It is holistic and integrated. It involves working with the leadership, administration, and the people to create a long-term vision, identify environmental, economic, social and cultural strengths, needs, and priorities and to plan the path to sustainability and achieving the vision.

This 2-day workshop introduces participants to comprehensive community planning (i.e. it is more than doing a site plan for your building!) including how to get started, and interesting and creative ways to involve youth, Elders, and community members in the process.
