Project Summary


Urban Environmental Sustainability (UES) is a concept that houses numerous areas of activity in Canada. The Corvus Centre undertook a cross-Canada study to identify the primary areas of activity within this space, the higher-level trends, and the types of players, then identify the areas and approaches most promising for philanthropic impact.


The research involved a high-level scan of the UES concept, including a compact literature review (articles from 14 journals over the last three years), a web review of NGO activity (31 Canadian organizations), a web review of 5 representative Canadian urban municipalities, and two targeted key-informant interviews.


The analysis involved categorizing and assessing concepts and issues, characterizing potential key players, and identifying opportunities for philanthropic impact.
