Making the Global Goals Local: The SDGs in Squamish

Making the Global Goals Local: The Sustainable Development Goals in Squamish

In 2015, the United Nations voted unanimously to adopt Agenda 2030 – an ambitious and transformational vision for a better future for all. At the core of this vision are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

Join us for an evening of conversation and refreshments as we explore the Sustainable Development Goals and what they could mean for Squamish. Through interactive dialogue, we will prioritize the goals, recognize areas in which Squamish is excelling and identify areas where there are challenges or barriers to action.

This event is open to interested citizens, as well as representatives from nonprofit organizations, government, business, academia and all other types of organization. Come wearing as many hats as you like!

Hosted in partnership with Community Accelerators, Outdoor Explore and Align Collective

Facilitated by Kathleen Lane, MBA and Olivia Allen

As a management consultant, Kathleen works with impact-focused businesses and not-for-profits to develop leadership capacity and to support strategic and operational planning. She became interested in the Sustainable Development Goals a year ago, and last summer had the opportunity to attend the United Nation’s SDG business forum in New York. Building on this experience, she has facilitated conversations on the SDGs at both UBC and at the HiVE co-working space in Vancouver, and recently completed Gaia Education’s SDG Training of Multipliers program.

Olivia is a social-environmental consultant offering project coordination, youth engagement, social/environmental education and grant writing services to NGOs. After completing her BSc in Environmental Science Olivia was eager to share her learnings with others and pursued a career in environmental education. She became interested in the SDG’s when she attended a Water Innovation Lab in India with her current employer, Waterlution. Olivia is particularly interested in implementing projects for community well-being, she is currently piloting a brewery waste upcycling contest, called Sustain-a-brew, where community members upcycle malt bags and win gift cards to Squamish-based craft beverage businesses.

Join us for consideration of the future!

    Whether you've been a resident for 30 years, 3 years, or 3 months, your input matters. The RMOW is leading a process to update Whistler's Official Community Plan and Vision, with a number of opportunities for community input.

    Community Forum
    Whistler Vision and OCP

    Save the date! The next opportunity for the community to provide feedback on Whistler’s Vision and Official Community Plan is at an open house on Monday, June 25. Details will be released in the coming weeks.

    Phase One of the 2018 update to Whistler’s community vision and OCP began in January, and Phase Two is continuing this summer.

    Overview

    The goal is to update the current realities and policies of the 2011 OCP to address changing factors and conditions affecting the resort community, as well as recent RMOW studies, strategies and initiatives over the past five years, and closer engagement with the Squamish and Lil’wat Nations.

    Timeline

    The first step to update the OCP is to revisit the guiding vision. Many people were involved in creating the Whistler2020 vision, and this new process is meant to build on its foundation. Whistler2020 was developed in 2004 and 2005, and the detailed vision has served Whistler over the years that followed, helping to inform decisions and dialogue. Progress towards the vision has been tracked and reported annually. Learn more: www.whistler.ca/monitoring.

    The second part of the project will focus on updating the OCP and will be a continuation of the 2010-2013 OCP process. Between 2010 and 2012, there was an intensive 20-month period of community engagement, policy development, document preparation and referrals.

    Community Engagement

    March Community Engagement

    In March, a variety of community engagement activities were available as part of the process to update Whistler’s Community Vision and Official Community Plan (OCP). The recent community engagement process builds on over 2,500 hours of community time in 2010-2011 to develop the OCP and on the detailed community planning that has occurred to date.

    The March 2018 engagement activities included a community forum, ideabooks, an online survey, social media and postcards to the future. The engagement activities provided community members with a variety of opportunities to participate in the visioning process. A total of 1105 responses were received through all sources of input. The process focused on vision-related content from Whistler2020 and from the 2011 draft OCP, and included the following questions:

    A. Whistler2020 vision statement and general vision input

    • To what extent do you like this vision statement for Whistler? What do you like about the vision statement, if anything? What would you change? What words should be used?
    • What do you love about whistler today?
    • What should Whistler strive for over the next 10-20 years above all else? What are the most important achievements we should aim for?

    B. OCP Our Shared Future content: For each of the 'Our Shared Future' sections from each 2011 draft OCP chapter, the following questions were asked:

    • To what extent do you agree with this vision of the future?
    • What part of this vision is most important to you?
    • What’s missing from this vision or should be changed? What else should Whistler strive for in the future?

    C. Whistler2020 Description of Success (DOS) statements:

    • What are the top statements that describe what success in this topic area must look like in the future?
    • What critical statements (if any) are missing?

    Each engagement activity is described below, along with the associated engagement content and questions for reference (activity A, B and/or C, as described above).

    Engagement Activity Description Content/questions included (see above)
    Forum The Community Forum held on March 5th included presentations by community leaders, a smartphone input exercise, table discussions, poster board input, and open space for participants to identify additional issues/concerns. Approximately 150 people attended the event. A, B, C
    Ideabook The MyFutureWhistler Ideabooks provided the opportunity for or sharing additional thoughts and details on specific questions and elements. 30 Ideabooks were submitted. A, B, C
    Survey A short online survey was created to make the visioning process more accessible to residents and in a shorter period of time than the Ideabook allowed. 250 people responded to the survey. A
    Postcards Postcards to the future and mailboxes were placed at the Library and at Meadow Park Sports Centre. The question focused on what the desired future for Whistler should look like. In total, 450 postcards were submitted from the general public and another 70 came in from school kids during our school visits. A
