the Veronica mafiaA Common Agenda is one of the 5 conditions of Collective Impact.

The Common Agenda includes a collective goal. This month we’ve been crafting a goal statement. Here are four variations, for rework:

  1. Children and youth in the Capital Region are healthy and happy from prenatal through to post-secondary; thriving and reaching their full potential.
  2. Happy, healthy children and youth today; caring, creative, responsible adults tomorrow. (Child & Youth Network statement)
  3. Together, improving the health and well-being of all children, youth and families in the Capital Region.
  4. Children, youth and families in the capital region: strong, capable and resilient; rich with wonder and knowledge. (adapted from Reggio Emilia)

Please send suggestions & refinements to petra@ypsn.ca or make your comments below.

One thought on “A Common Agenda

  1. Hi they all look good to me! I really like the statements that include happiness as a goal.

    #3 I’d add a couple words: Together “we are” improving or:
    Together we aim to improve the health and well-being of all children, youth and families in the Capital Region.
