The Institute for Values-Based Research (IVBR) of Royal Roads University is committed to exploring and promoting approaches to leadership results in the best outcomes for prosperity,  people, and planet.  IVBR has created a forum in LinkedIn for community leaders and agents to engage in productive discussion on how to employ responsible and effective leadership.  Join the discussion on Values, Culture, and Leadership to discover innovated ways of approaching leadership, to learn of events that promote responsible leadership, and to input your ideas on how to be an effective leader.

For those who are interested in joining more discussions on community development and leadership, check out our resource lists for dialogue and forums.

Led by Dr. Kevin Hanna, the National Municipal Adaptation Project (NMAP) aims to assess the state of planning for adaptation and resiliency in Canadian local governments, develop case studies, and generate applied knowledge for advancing community adaptation planning. In Canada there are a range of organizations and government agencies that are addressing different aspects of adaptation and developing examples and guidelines. NMAP's approach is to develop a comprehensive image of the state of planning and the needs of local governments.
