Launched in 2002, Think City believes citizens can make the best decision about the kind of city they want, when they are given the time, support and tools they need.
Think City works to:
a) help citizens realise the issues facing their communities and develop collective solutions;
b) facilitate the strengthening of civil societies within communities and across British Columbia;
c) educate citizens on ways to protect their environment, strengthen local economies, and ensure the protection of individual rights and access to good public services; and
d) provide communities with educational tools to assist in the long-term development of healthier societies.
As a result of our work, Think City has developed expertise in producing large-scale citizen participation exercises through public forums, workshops, surveys and hallmark conferences. More recently, Think City has expanded on its role as a civic issues convenor to begin developing policy solutions through our Dream Vancouver process that was launched in October 2007.
Our partners include academic institutions, trade unions, small businesses and other non-profit organizations who share our values. Our non-partisan, non-profit organization is run by a volunteer board that is elected each year.
