The Cité-ID Living Lab and the Maison de l’innovation sociale (MIS) have developed a research project to meet these objectives, in partnership with the City of Montréal, which aims to assess the relevance of the concept of social capital as a vector of urban resilience in different contexts.This project has three main objectives:
1. to develop an appropriate tool for measuring social capital;
2. to understand the mechanisms for creating social capital; and 3. to develop a tool for measuring social capital;
3. to observe the mechanisms for institutionalizing the concept of social capital.
The project was divided into three components, based on research sub-projects:
Component 1: “Resilience and social capital : preparation for catastrophic events,” in partnership with Transition NDG;
Component 2: “Resilience and social capital : youth”, with The YMCA of Québec’s C-Vert Program;
Component 3: “Soupe locale Centre-Sud”, with the Corporation de développement communautaire Centre-Sud.
