Global Community Initiatives
Community Planning
Combining strategies that incorporate the insights from system dynamics, global principles articulated in the Earth Charter, and innovative community mobilization techniques, GCI helps communities create a shared vision, with specific goals, targets, strategies, and indicators to implement an integrated action plan for sustainable development. GCI recognizes that all of the aspects of community life are interdependent - you can’t achieve a healthy environment without also working for human rights and social justice, good governance means embracing new approaches to participatory democracy, and all of it is reliant on a new paradigm of respect and care for the whole community of life.
