Welcome to HEAD (Humanity, Education and Design) Talks. Join us as we explore, experiment and share our research on how to make the world a better place. A place of reconciliation rejoicing and regeneration, where dreams come true.
The Meeting the Climate Change Challenge (MC3) project was developed through a partnership between Royal Roads University, the University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University for the purposes of researching climate adaptation and mitigation strategies developed by and implemented in BC communities. This video series aims to spread knowledge on communities and reactions to climate change through a sharing of ideas from the MC3 research team, research partners, and researchers performing similar work.
This series was produced from outcomes of the Community Research Connections program (CRC) workshop held at Royal Roads University, entitled "De-growth: A Critical Juncture?". The final video in this series was created in partnership with students of Royal Roads University's Professional Communications program, and it responds to ideas on rethinking growth and progress in modern times.
Vitality is the difference between a community thriving, rather than merely surviving. What makes a community thrive? This video describes the concept behind the Community Research Connections program's thematic investigation of the factors that are important to community vitality. Previous research reveals that communities face an array of social, ecological, and economic challenges. Their response to these challenges is mixed: while some communities struggle to survive, others thrive.
Six proxy indicators emerged from the preliminary research done for the Community Vitality project. These six indicators of community vitality are presented in using a series of ten images, a technique known as petcha kucha
