Sarah commented on Building Net Positive Communities in the Bay Area

I love this idea and I think the systemic approach will be key here.
Allowing the community itself to use a tool like openIDEO, or other online systemic tools would be a great way for people of all ages, races, cultures etc. to participate and engage in the betterment of the community by giving them a place to have their voices heard. The engagement process (the how) is just as important as the WHAT in such an ambitious endeaver as NET Positive Bay Area! We are looking into Eco-Districts and setting up a sort of 'Sustainable Neighborhood Toolkit' for Palo Alto. We should join forces as it will take a similar systemic and bottom up (door-to-door) approach to make it happen: https://openideo.com/challenge/renewable-energy/ideas/ecodistricts-as-a-pathway-toward-real-community-public-private-partnership-engagement-city-and-community-work-together-to-create-sustainable-future

Looking forward to collaborating with you!

Thanks Meena! I actually participated in the HCD course last yaer- what fun! I'll go back to the form for some re-working.

Thanks Shuting! We are working on a plan for community engagement as we are drafting our Climate Action Plan and we find that this neighborhood level engagement will be key! The toolkit will be developed alongside the pilot. We need to get some funding to make this all happen. We have several community partners engaged with this work and are ready to dig-in once as soon as possible.
