Creating Your Community’s Future
Visionary leaders. Vital economies. Genuine opportunity. Cars on Main Street...and more.
Vibrant communities don’t arrive by accident, and they aren’t going to last long in isolation. Resilient communities make their own future, both by taking responsibility for it and by building powerful networks of sustaining relationships. These actions catalyze a community’s ability to expand opportunity for all its residents.
Research and reports
A community’s economy is sustainable, not dependent on exploiting human beings or depleting the natural environment. It moves beyond merely having cars on Main Street to a sense of long-term viability through renewing and sustaining the human and other resources that create the community’s economic advantages.
