What is ‘Succeeding Together’?
Succeeding Together is a collective impact project aimed at creating a culture of support across the Flagstaff Region through sustained, multifaceted programs that embed several key concepts into our community. The campaign is centered around amplifying stories of success and building pride in the region through five economic pillars: Agriculture, Oil & Gas, Community, Small Business, and History
The goal is to launch a series of community initiatives that use collective action groups to:
- Encourage our communities to “Go Local”
- Create a positive forward-thinking mindset
- Build regional pride
- Create a culture of collaboration
- Investment (beyond dollars) into businesses, community, and citizens and
- Encourage strong levels of community engagement.
The Future Is Flagstaff – A Community Engagement Session
The Future Is Flagstaff was a community engagement session that allowed community leaders (aged 15+) to come together virtually and share their goals, build new connections and collectively envision a sustainable and resilient future for the Flagstaff Region. Every person has a vision of where they see themselves in 10-15 years, but what about rural small towns and the Flagstaff region as a whole? This initiative gave participants the opportunity to dream big, and provide input into what the future region could look like!
Participants engaged in conversations around technology distruptions/changes, new business models, global challenges, and opportunities to build resilient futures. They combined their capabilities, time, assets, and realized possibilities for the future.
