Golden Area Initiatives
Join us for a fast paced and interactive evening of dialogue and fun to help chart the course for your community’s future.
In order to develop a clear vision and direction that will help to steer the region’s community economic development activity over a five-year period, Golden Area Initiatives (GAI) has embarked on the development of a Multi-Stakeholder, Regional Community Economic Development (CED) Assessment, Strategy and Implementation Plan.
This Plan is intended to focus strongly on practical, tangible and measurable actions that will enhance the local economy and strengthen the local community. Community stakeholders, partnerships and relationships will be leveraged and called upon for input and participation in all aspects of the development of this Initiative.
As a launch to this CED Planning Initiative, on September 14 from 6:30 – 9:00 p.m. at the Golden Senior’s Centre, GAI will be hosting a session of the Futures Game in conjunction with our delivery partners the Rural BC Secretariat – Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Innovation, Community Futures East Kootenay and Smart Planning for Communities.
The Futures Game provides you with an opportunity to discuss the contemporary challenges of community and economic development decision-making over a 25 year period – an engage in thought provoking and meaningful discussions, provide new insights about the future and identify actions to move forward.
The game is designed to help participants explore the impacts of regional and local decision making on long-term economic, environmental and community well-being.
