Because people are at the heart of the Resilient Minneapolis strategy, community engagement is an essential part of strategy development. Minneapolis is currently doing a scan of resilience in Minneapolis and engaging the community in the following ways:
- 100 Conversations: Chief Resilience Officer Kate Knuth is holding 100 conversations in 100 Days with a wide range of community leaders and resilience stakeholders. These conversations started September 13 and will conclude on the first day of winter. Kate is documenting the 100 conversations weekly.
- Community Survey: The people of Minneapolis can share their perspectives on the shocks and stresses they are most concerned about as well as their perceptions of resilience in Minneapolis.
- Focus groups and workshops: Several focus groups and workshops will help focus the resilience strategy in key areas such as climate change, the built and natural environment, and civic life.
The community engagement to support the resilience scan is designed to inform and consult with stakeholders, as described on the International Association for Public Participation Spectrum of Public Participation. Future engagement is expected to involve more public impact in decision-making.
