BALTA Project E3 – Mapping the Social Economy from the Ground Up: Urban Neighbourhood/Rural Community Case Study
MetadataShow full item record
The social economy has begun to attract a lot of interest in Alberta, Canada. This research proposal is to map, through a sustainability lens, the social economy at a neighbourhood level in one Calgary, Alberta, community. This project would twin with a mapping project in Athabasca being undertaken by Mike Gismondi, using this same methodology. The twin projects, one in Calgary and one in Athabasca, will provide comparative research into the rural-urban linkages of the social economy. Neither urban nor rural exist in isolation of each other. The Calgary urban economy will be the starting point for mapping the urban–rural connection. The Athabasca rural economy will be the starting point for mapping the rural-urban connection.
