We have been working on the next version of the Community Canvas for the last couple of months and this post is a summary of the clarity we see on where we are headed. We’d LOVE to hear any feedback or reflections you have, you can leave a comment below or email us at team@community-canvas.org. This post was collectively put together by our project team: Daniel Brooks, Chris Chavez, Michel Bachman, Sascha Mombartz, Sita Magnusson and myself.

Project intention

Here is what we are sensing for version 2.0 of the Community Canvas:

  • We believe we live in a disconnected world where communities have a tremendous power to impact society in a positive way. “Whatever the problem, community is the answer.” (Margaret Wheatley)

Project goals

  • Publish a next iteration of the Canvas by Q4 2019
