Lake Macquarie City Council has planning local areas to provide the community better walking tracks to not only encourage a healthier lifestyle for residents, but to also reduce car use for better environmental outcomes.
Stories was used by Council to collect information about the places people walk and want to walk.
More importantly it allowed the whole community relate to the behind those choices.
The City of Winnipeg consulted the community in preparation for its 2017 budget. Encouraging people to have their say in how tax dollars are spent, the City used the Stories tool to unite the community in sharing what city services were most important them, as well as ideas to help balance revenues and expenditures.
Stories was used to gain a deeper understanding of the reasons behind individual and community preferences for certain services, and just as importantly, to expose difference sections of the community to those reasons.
