The BuildAction platform was established to enable citizens and other stakeholders to take action to ensure the sustainable development and operation of communities.  BuildAction provides a proper and respectful environment for community stakeholders to communicate, cooperate and collaborate.

The BuildAction platform allows community members to launch initiatives, engage in discussion with like-minded individuals, suggest solutions for the sustainable development and operation of communities, request services and solutions for local development projects, and the posting of petitions.  Individual initiatives (“concerns”) are posted on their own, can be substantiated with news, supported by resources, and used to post a petition.

All citizens and other stakeholders in the development communities are welcome to participate and interact, collaborate and encourage sustainable development and use of land, buildings and infrastructure.  These include all stakeholders in the built environment – countries, communities, companies and citizens.

The active participation of stakeholders at the local level is critical for the protection and development of communities.  The stakeholders can serve as the driving force in the sustainable development and protection of our communities.

Participation calls for direct citizen involvement in government decision-making and service delivery.  Civic engagement is essential for the sustainable development of the local socioeconomic environment, to increase political trust, and strengthen democratic values.

BuildAction Communities facilitates the collaboration of community stakeholders – individuals, businesses, public institutions, and civil society organizations – to engage in community initiatives and take collaborative action.  The sustainable development of communities, businesses and society is all about collaborating to realize shared goals.
