Dynamic Shared Space Feasibility Study
The WNY Environmental Alliance recently hosted a webinar to introduce the concept of developing a dynamic shared space – an idea that we had hoped to introduce at our December meeting.
In short, we are currently beginning a process to explore if this is the right time for a collaborative space where organizations from both the public and private sector, with common goals, meet under one roof to cooperate, collaborate, catalyze, and share ideas to create a more sustainable tomorrow, while at the same time providing access to nature and social engagement. In other cities, shared spaces provide a venue and support to create impactful partnerships and programs. Our study process will look to answer questions, such as: What could this look like in Buffalo? Who might be involved? What value would it provide to users and the community at large? What programs and services would make it flourish?
