Why is this important? “I’m putting the “we” in community wellbeing”
Personal and community wellbeing are tied together, our community can only thrive when each individual thrives. The first step to improving wellbeing is to understand what people value and what factors they think contribute to their wellbeing. Once we have a shared understanding of what wellbeing means to everyone we can start to develop areas to focus on and actions to improve it. Our plans need to be rooted in what the community values and shaped by as many residents of Waterloo Region as possible.
