Some Background: The Miami Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) ranks the worst in the nation for measured levels of civic involvement (Source: Corporation for National and Community Service, using 51 largest MSAs, 2014). Civic involvement is a key indicator of quality of life and of economic prosperity, with a direct influence on job creation and opportunity, economic redevelopment, and unemployment rates. It is defined by the degree to which people trust each other, help their neighbors, and interact with their government. Experience elsewhere has demonstrated that the active civic engagement and collaboration among the public, non-profit and private sectors is key to improving economic health, good governance and quality of life of the community.
One Table, Many Sectors: The Greater Miami Civic Advance Initiative is designed to understand and address the issues underlying Miami’s low civic standing and enhance our collective civic capacity to work together to resolve community issues. It will do so by setting “one table” where the non-profit, public and private sectors can create, leverage and sustain an enabling environment for civic engagement and collaborative leadership. The One Table, Many Sectors Civic Advance approach will provide an interactive forum and seek to create an ongoing platform for civic reflection, information and tool sharing and the promotion of collective impact collaboration and actions on civic advance throughout Greater Miami.
