City Strategy and Vision Development

In city strategy and vision development, we collaborate with stakeholders to create a shared vision for the city's future, one that is grounded in the aspirations and needs of its diverse citizens. We facilitate dialogue and collaboration, encouraging diverse perspectives to inform the planning process. Through research and data analysis, we identify trends, opportunities, and challenges, translating these insights into tailored solutions based on the city's unique requirements.

We understand that a diverse population with differing opinions can be brought together by framing certain issues for the benefit of all. By leveraging a city's existing work and combining it with our extensive academic research, we create strategies that resonate with a broad range of stakeholders. Our approach may involve developing strategies for attracting and retaining talent, fostering economic growth, and promoting environmentally sustainable practices, or assisting in creating platforms for increased transparency and engagement.

Throughout the process, we remain focused on creating a city that is prosperous, sustainable, and inclusive for all residents, offering our support in various capacities to ensure the success of the city's strategy and vision. By effectively harnessing the power of diverse opinions and building upon the city's existing work, we help cities move forward with evidence-based, impactful strategies that benefit everyone.

Our Process

1

Engage Stakeholders and Build on Existing Data

Our initial step involves engaging with a diverse group of stakeholders, including city officials, community organizations, and residents, to gather input on their priorities and aspirations for the city's future. Recognizing that cities may have already collected valuable data about their stakeholders, our job is to build on that information, filling in any gaps, and amplifying its value. As part of this process, we conduct extensive academic research, consult with experts and other jurisdictions, and leverage our evidence-based knowledge. We will facilitate dialogue and collaboration, ensuring that diverse perspectives, particularly those of the youth, inform the planning process. By understanding the local context and the unique needs of different population groups, we can tailor our approach to address the city's specific challenges and opportunities.

Analyze Trends and Opportunities

Once we have a clear understanding of the city's goals and stakeholder input, we will conduct in-depth research to identify trends, opportunities, and challenges that the city may face in the future. This research will extend beyond youth engagement, incorporating critical factors such as climate resilience, city attractiveness for retaining and acquiring talent, and economic development. Our analysis will be informed by academic research, best practices from other jurisdictions, and expert consultations, ensuring that our recommendations are based on a comprehensive understanding of the city's context and potential future scenarios.

Develop and Present Tailored City Strategy and Vision Solutions

With the insights gained from our research, we will develop a set of tailored solutions that address the city's goals and stakeholder priorities, catering to their specific needs. We recognize that cities may require our support in various capacities, such as creating a platform to increase transparency and engagement or focusing on specific elements of the overall plan. Drawing from our evidence-based approach and consultations with experts and other jurisdictions, we will present our recommendations to the client, providing detailed explanations of the rationale behind each solution and how our expertise can help them implement initiatives that create a positive impact on the overall development of the city.
