We first started working on an early version of the CC Tool in 2005. In 2009 we joined forces with Telos Sustainability Institute at Tilburg University in the Netherlands to refine and further develop the CC Tool. Telos has made a significant impact in the Netherlands and in other European countries in sustainability planning. Indeed, all 403 Dutch municipalities are now using some version of the tool developed by Telos.
Our CC Tool was launched in 2012, in conjunction with the publication of the 4th edition of Dr. Roseland’s book Toward Sustainable Communities: Solutions for Citizens and Their Governments.
The Community Capital Scan is available free online here in English. It is also available in Spanish and in Portuguese.
