Community inspired and led engagement

West End Neighbours is an impressive example of a community inspired organisation (“a citizen-based volunteer organization“) focused on exploring future directions for their community. The West End is a residential area adjoining the Vancouver downtown area in British Columbia, Canada. Perhaps the most impressive aspect of this volunteer organisation is their ability to independently educate and engage with their broader community on complex issues, including zoning and heritage. The question West End Neighbours poses for engagement professionals is can this type of community inspired leadership be replicated elsewhere across a diversity of complex issues?
