2009 Alberta Urban Municipalities Association Visionary Communities Award.
The Cochrane Sustainability Plan was launched in April 2008 with the intent of creating a roadmap for action that the Cochrane community can use to build a sustainable future together. Intelligent Futures has been selected to lead the process from methodology development to action planning and implementation. Featuring a “hybrid” approach of leading-edge sustainability planning methodologies, the Cochrane Sustainability Plan is positioned to create a model process and plan for communities across Canada and around the world. The Visioning process connected with over 400 citizens of Cochrane and the Action Planning phase is currently underway, with over 70 individuals and organizations participating in six Action Groups – Built Environment, Cultural, Economic, Governance, Natural Environment and Social.
