What we heard
In the first half of 2014, skeena2050 volunteers went door-to-door and interviewed over 600 people about their ideas, hopes and fears for the region. Our intent was to create a safe space for dialogue; to listen thoughtfully; and to share what we heard with the wider community.
As you can imagine, there's a vast amount of content involved. To make it easily accessible, we've curated the findings in 3 ways:
- BY THE NUMBERS: A booklet with 12 colour charts. Read it, or download it here.
- IN WORDS: A selection of 440 individual answers from skeena2050 participants. Read them, or download them here.
- THROUGH STORIES: Video clips in which our volunteers share their experiences and learning. Watch them here.
Now, it's over to you.
We invite you to set aside 30 minutes to read, watch and reflect. You'll encounter the real, unscripted voices that make up our communities, and gain a deeper understanding of the choices that lie ahead.
Then, why not share what you learned with a friend or a neighbour, and strike up a conversation?
If you still need convincing, check out the following 2-minute video clip, for a preview. This is skeena2050 in a nutshell: "If everybody's open to listening, it's easier to find common ground."
Neighbours talking to neighbours is a very powerful thing.
