In addition to engaging in discussion related to the course module on Food, during the 4-day Residency you will be introduced to three alternative formats for your Sustainable Urban Economies project:
- Business Model: A business model describes the rationale of how an organization creates, delivers, and captures value. It is a living document that needs to be revisited over the life of the organization.
- Policy Analysis Paper: A policy analysis paper provides a target audience with sufficient information to make decisions on a specific policy issue. This tool is most useful in the context of a particular political moment and context.
- Campaign Strategy/Plan: A campaign strategy builds from a clear objective that is aligned with long-term goals, includes information about target groups (power analysis), and includes a tactical action plan on a timeline. Like the business model, it needs to be revisited over the course of the campaign to adapt to new opportunities and obstacles. Campaign Plans typically include specific elements such as research, organizing, legal, communication, and political, depending on the nature of the campaign.
