This session will explore the many overlapping systems that shape a sustainable community, and will discuss the critical intersections that you need to be paying attention to as you plan, fund, and implement strategies that you hope will catalyze change in your communities.  While some systems are challenging but familiar, such as transportation, energy, and land use; others may be outside of your expertise, like social, local economic, environmental, and public health systems.  They are all essential, however, to achieving a healthy, thriving community.  Join us for a robust discussion that will provide you with a more holistic perspective on the challenge and necessity of community-based action.
