MODUS and Cisco Canada teamed up at the Canadian Institute of Planner's 2014 conference: People Matter.
We brought together about forty public-sector planners, consultants, and elected officials from across Canada to tackle, "What steps can we take to improve civic engagement and empower decision-makers with evidence to support transformative change?"
Our “shared quest” was to think about the ideal communities we want to see and imagine how better engagement with better information can lead to transformative change. We spent five hours getting to know each other, finding inspiration in a panel discussion, developing an agenda for small groups work, diving deeply into 13 different topics, and reflecting on our “deepest learning” of the day.
