For November, we're excited to present the Canadian and USA winners of Project of the Year honors at the 2017 IAP2 North American Core Values Awards.
The City of Calgary, Alberta, was faced with the task of extending and improving the Crowchild Trail -- a major north-south transportation artery. This would cause disruption in a number of neighbourhoods and business areas, so the city launched a public engagement campaign to address the many and varied issues. Learn about the challenges the city faced and the tools and techniques that were employed, and how you can apply them to your own P2 projects.
When the Mental Health Centers of Denver, Colorado, decided to open a branch facility in an economically depressed part of the Mile High City, it ran into public skepticism that could have bordered on hostility. But MHCD determined to overcome it not by pushing its own ideas, but by engaging with local people -- including gang members -- to find out what they needed and how those needs could be met. The result -- the Dahlia Campus for Health and Wellbeing -- has proven to be a source of community, activity and even food for the people in the area.
