Recover took stock of all of its research and experience. It was time to see what it was telling us about what we really mean by the term urban wellness.
In 2020, we commissioned one of our consultants to aggregate all our data and they put together the Soulful City document. It contains a wellbeing framework that is built upon all the insights that emerged, and it has 6 kinds of connection at its core.
Recover also worked to better understand Indigenous concepts of wellness and wellbeing. Another of our consultants prepared strategic recommendations to help all those involved with Recover to build understanding, build good relations and develop capacities. It is very closely aligned with the City's Indigenous Framework.
Recover continued to support a smaller number of prototypes - this work was hampered by the pandemic, but allowed the prototype teams to spend more time on research and ideation.
