Let's take care of our land of plenty!

The Pays de Cocagne Sustainable Development Group's (PCSDG) mission is to engage citizen participation towards the sustainability of Cocagne watershed communities

During the public consultations held prior to the incorporation of Cocagne, residents indicated that protecting the environment is a major priority for the rural community. As part of the From Land to Sea project, PCSDG developed a spatially referenced representation of the Cocagne watershed. Project partners clearly identified the importance of having information accessible by making it available in a format that is relevant to and can easily be used by the general population.

During the first phase of the project, a list of key sites of natural, historical, recreational, emotional, personal and social significance to community residents was created. A list of important documents was established and made available to the community on the PCSDG website.

During phase 2 of the project, we developed two tools—a digital map and a three-dimensional poster—to show the key sites and link them with relevant sources of ecological and cultural information.
