10 + Introduction to the Outcome Domain Map Through this project, CDLI presents a conceptual map for CD in Calgary by generating four key “outcome domain” areas. This outcome domain map can set in motion positive action to unify the CD movement in Calgary by constructively engaging critical voices, and different traditions and practices, on issues of shared engagement. It can provide the grounds for dialogues about shared vision, practice and assumptions. 7/8/14 11 CDLI Calgary
