How can we communicate bylaw regulations in an engaging way that inspires compliance and is not entirely focused on the punitive measures?

Term: Fall 2019
Department: Business School
Course: BADM 202 People Management
Instructor: Laurie Prange Martin
Staff contact: Paul Duffy (City of North Vancouver)

Municipal bylaws often get a bad rep. The primary objective of the project is to prototype ways to educate the public on the background and importance of specific by-laws (related to noise, dogs, drinking water, litter and others identified by our staff contact) to encourage voluntary compliance and a deeper appreciation for municipal by-laws.
