Let’s Build Complete Communities

March 20 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm


How do we build healthy, vibrant, and complete communities where you can access food, water, nature, and key services all within a 15-minute walk or roll? 

Join us on March 20 for our webinar to learn about the great work going on in Portland and other regions to develop and strengthen complete communities for people to access all their needs within a close circle and to connect with creative public spaces that increase social engagement and connection.

Experts Chris Crockett, Bill Cunningham, Sarah Iannarone, and Alan DeLaTorre will highlight the importance of building complete communities, the challenges and opportunities to develop these communities, and point to meaningful opportunities for you to get involved. By nurturing more complete communities, we can strengthen economies and deliver lasting health, well-being, equity, and climate benefits wherever people live, work and play, no matter their age, race, gender or disability status.

Join us to learn more and to get involved!
