April Learning Webinar - Core Values Award Winners: Creativity, Indigenous Engagement & the Public Good

IAP2 is excited to present more opportunities to learn from the best of the best, as this month, we feature three distinct and diverse award-winning P2 projects. It's a smorgasbord of ideas, tools and techniques that you can use to apply to your own work. End-of-life health care choices can be a subject a lot of us try to avoid, and it's possible to wait too long. CEAN -- the Community Engagement Advisory Network at the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority -- set out to help people deal with it in the Advance Care Planning Program. Facilitators volunteer their time to help bring together patients, family members and health-care providers to plan for the inevitable while the patient is still able to make his or her wishes clear. CEAN received the P2 for the Public Good Award at the 2016 IAP2 Core Values Award.


Rejuvenating a major traffic artery in San Francisco and bringing it back to its former glory was also a touchy subject around the City By The Bay, and the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency chose to reach out to the people involved to help come up with a plan. The Van Ness Improvement Project is still going on, and the P2 process MUNI used was the first recipient of IAP2 USA's Core Values Award for Creativity and Innovation.

And community planning on First Nations often fails to meet the needs of the people it's supposed to serve, if the process is based in a colonial paradigm. The School of Community and Resource Planning (SCARP) at the University of British Columbia recently partnered with the Musqueam Indian Band -- traditional inhabitants of the land where UBC sits -- to develop the Indigenous Community Planning Program. This Master's degree program equips students for working with First Nations to plan their communities in ways that are truly "home-grown". The program received the IAP2 Canada 2016 Core Values Award for Indigenous Engagement.
