CALP focuses on accessible solutions that bridge research and practice by bringing rigorous science and modeling, visualizations, innovative environmental design and participatory processes to community and landscape planning. How does CALP do this? Specifically by using various tools such as modeling and visualization, and processes such as workshops, charrettes and extensive community planning exercises to investigate the impact of how citizens, stakeholders, practitioners and decision-makers engage with sustainability challenges in their communities. In doing so, we strive to establish CALP as an international centre for climate action and education for the broader public and our partner communities.
