Workshop Materials: Regional Visioning Based on Shared Values

Posted on: April 3rd, 2013 by Brett Schwartz

These materials are from Robert Grow’s (Envision Utah) opening plenary address “Regional Visioning Based on Shared Values,” given at the Prosperous Places workshop in Salt Lake City, March 25-26, 2013.  Organized by NADO and Envision Utah (http://www NULL.envisionutah, this workshop brought together around 50 HUD Sustainable Communities grantees, experts, and capacity-builders to focus on place-based local economic development strategies and scenarios planning.

Grow discussed how visions should satisfy the values, hopes, and dreams of citizens, and how a successful visioning process includes identifying community values to find common ground, frame issues, communicate, and build consensus.  Visions that respond to core values can be implemented, because satisfying one’s values is the foundation of personal and collective decision making.  This presentation explained the importance of understanding values in visioning processes and explored options for smaller places and rural regions.
