Plan to develop a virtual communications hub that will function as an information clearinghouse to keep everyone with an interest in sustainability informed and linked. 
 
Also plan to facilitate the creation of a regional “report card” that will give communities the ability to set sustainability goals and monitor their progress. The report card would propose a set of sustainability indicators that are relevant to Grey Bruce and would support development of an integrated community sustainability plan. Based on community input, an integrated community sustainability plan is a long term plan that provides direction to realize sustainability objectives across environmental, cultural, economic and social spheres.
