Engaging our communities and telling our stories
Author and international thought leader Peter Kageyama will offer a fresh and innovative perspective around what engagement is going to look like in the future and how we can better engage with our communities, and tell our stories to build a sense of place. Peter will take a look at what makes cities lovable, what motivates citizens to do extraordinary things for their places and he will discuss how we can be more creative about turning peoples' emotional engagement with their place into tangible action, and use that excitement and energy as a much needed community development resource.
