Once you have created a community conversation around change, agreed upon a collective vision, and created a shared understanding of the systemic factors that are influencing your environment, it is time to look for opportunities for change. This part of the approach involves processes which generate ideas for innovative solutions, and create a plan to reach shared outcomes.
Community members develop a collaborative plan (e.g. a Community Action Plan) which outlines shared vision and outcomes, resources, governance mechanisms, projects that contribute to achieve the vision, targets and measurements, and evaluation approaches. This first plan could include some prototype or pilot projects that will enable the group to test out some of the ideas, and through their implementation, refine the collaboration and build trust within the group.
