> Getting Beyond Green: Community mobilization for sustainable community
> Why are some communities more successful at bridging the sustainability planning – implementation gap than others? How are their priorities for sustainability expressed? This research develops a framework for community mobilization for sustainable community development consisting of actors, motivations, and decision-making processes to explore community mobilization for award winning sustainability case studies from Canada. Lessons from the case studies suggest that community mobilization is mostly ad hoc, pragmatic and flexible, resulting in incremental change. However, the tendency for municipal sustainability initiatives to focus on “greener” growth misses the potential for broader community mobilization for change that could result from the convergence of the social economy and sustainability. The presentation concludes with a discussion of on-going research of the potential of local food initiatives to merge the transformative potential of sustainable community development and the social economy.
