Community is not just about places – it’s about people. It’s about empowering people through choice, about connecting people through services and opportunities and engaging people through programmes and activities.
Through team brainstorming and creative programming, blueandyellow identifies economic and social opportunities that support environmental objectives, such as food co-ops, community gardens, and appropriate commercial entreprises like bicycle repair shops.

We foster social sustainability by addressing issues of:

  • diversity
  • affordability
  • flexibility
  • equal opportunity
  • accessibility
  • food security

and planning for community spaces, public transportation, a range of housing types and services such as day care.

We research and develop programs and training sessions addressing such subjects as urban agriculture, natural and traditional building methods, sweat equity, team-building.
