Develop a neighborhood vision statement specific to the community
A vision statement is a projection towards the future, laying out an ideal to achieve. This short activity can be done during an event like a citizen forum.
When the written vision statement expresses the views of the participants, the vision exercise reinforces the sense of ownership of the project and can serve as a project guide to ensure it reflects local priorities. A diversity of citizens and oartners is necessary to ensure representation in the vision statement.
- The exercise can be carried out during a formal activity during the introduction.
- Present the result of the group work a little later or at the end of the activity.
- As a result of this activity, write the vision statement and create a visual presenting the main ideas.
