Presentation Overview:

The foundation for creating strong, economically resilient and liveable communities is increasingly built upon a spectrum of place-based activities that develop improved tools and strategies. This workshop is designed to give participants practical tools and share insider views about pioneering community building models. The webinar topic is community driven equitable development strategies focusing upon two models: (1) Employee-owned company(s) that creates jobs and career pathways for local residents; and (2) Community land trust that provides permanently affordable housing programs for local residents. This webinar is the second training event in this equitable development technical assistance series. The first training is the Equitable Development Workshop September 1, 2015 in Chicago at EPA's Brownfields 2015 National Training Conference.
