Parker continued, "With this call for proposals, we want to focus our research towards investigating ideas to will better enable us to understand the relationships between attitudes and behaviours. The results of this research will help us create effective programs to enhance the development of sustainable communities. Information gathered and developed from this research will assist us to create initiatives that will successfully engage people in changing the way they incorporate sustainability concepts into their daily lives."

In this third Call For Proposals, Communities of Tomorrow wishes to partner with researchers and/or proponents that have innovative and beneficial projects that contribute to research related to attitudes and behaviours of the general public, policy makers, organizations, community groups, and business to make our communities more sustainable.
