    In 2011-2012 the UWGV piloted the Engaging Neighbours: Community Tables in the neighbourhoods of Oaklands, Gorge-Tillicum, and North Park. UWGV and BCHC collaborated on the Community Tables project to create the space for cross-sectoral community conversations. These conversations resulted in identified strategies for taking action at the community level. Monthly sessions involved group learning and capacity building processes, which helped explore local challenges, identify assets, and generate neighbourhood focused actions.One of the piloted communities was North Park, a ‘gritty’, multicultural neighbourhood with a broad socio-economic mix. The overall vision for North Park, generated at the monthly meetings, was that of “a culturally diverse, green, inclusive community that values the provision of affordable housing to families and those experiencing poverty. The table members aspired to keep North Park artsy, ‘funky’, and gritty while remaining safe and accessible”. The table members acknowledged that the monthly meetings had created a powerful engine for future collaboration and decided to continue building on this momentum. Some of the table members joined the North Park Neighbourhood Assocation as part of a new action-focused sub committee, others started a neighbourhood wide green mapping project with the support of the UWGV.Not all table members ended up being directly involved with the action plans, but the church members, artists, social workers, farmers, youth and others that participated at the table sessions were given the opportunity to speak their voice, hear each others stories and learn from each others experiences and that has created a stronger foundation for these emerging communities.The final outcomes of the Engaging Neighbours: Community Tables pilot project will be presented at the Community Tea & Celebration on September 19.

    51. 51. The Hook: With others or alone, depending on how you think best, take the position of a top advertising executive. Your job is to “sell” Gross National Happiness. Your performance will be evaluated based on 3 factors: 1) the number of people to take the GNH Index survey, 2) the quality and amount of press you gain and 3) buy-in from local politicians and community leaders. Identify up to 3 “hooks” (e.g. emotional appeal that attracts, appeals to your audiences’ self-image and affirms you provide what they want) to attract and retain the attention of your audience. Hooks include clever phrases, catchy jingles, unforgettable image…
