Whistler’s Vital Conversations
How might we challenge the way things are?
What if citizens had more conversations about the livability of Whistler or about whether or not everyone is thriving?
In this World Café style event, the Whistler Community Foundation will offer up plenty of engaging prompts for small groups to explore the themes and data in this year’s Vital Signs: A Community Check Up. The October topic is: Is everyone thriving?
Inside Whistler’s Vital Signs is a section dedicated to measuring how we’re doing with community systems and services. This Vital Conversation will be a guided discovery of the issues Whistler faces and the intersecting themes those issues present.
Based on a combination of research and the information available through the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, the Whistler Community Foundation defined a livable community as:
A community that provides and prioritizes affordability and personal independence, economic opportunity, safe and secure living conditions, justice, choice of mobility options, including active and public transit, and fosters a sense of community – allowing residents of all ages to thrive and engage in civic, economic and social life.
