Connect with the Knowledge Base.
Strong Towns is proud to announce the launch of a brand new resource, the Strong Towns Knowledge Base. This interactive, wiki-style platform allows you to ask any question you might have about how to make your place stronger and get answers from members of the Strong Towns community. And while you’re at it, we also invite you to contribute your insights and experience on topics you’re knowledgable about. This Knowledge Base is currently in beta, but with your help, it will grow into a comprehensive, easily searchable database that will help citizens and leaders across America take action. Sign on now and join the conversation.
Connect with our staff and contributors.
Got a question that only the Strong Towns team can help with? While we’re all about inspiring you to find the bespoke solutions your unique community needs and we encourage you to start with the networks above first, there are still a few ways that we can help.
Our Ask Strong Towns Webcast is your chance to ask our staff (and occasional celebrity guests) your burning questions and get advice on how to make your unique place stronger. Only members can participate in AST live, but anyone can submit a question on the Ask Strong Towns page. Visit our webcast page to find out when the next broadcast is, and check out past episodes on our podcast stream to see if we’ve answered your question in the past.
If you’re looking for advice from a pro, consider submitting to our periodic advice column, Ask R. Moses. (Hint: our advice isn’t often all that similar to what the actual Robert Moses would probably tell you). Written by a secret panel of Strong Towns contributors who are licensed planners and engineers, the anonymous persona of R. Moses gives professionals in the built environment a chance to speak to important issues without fear of reprisal from their peers, employers, or licensing organizations.
If you have a question that can only be answered by the Strong Towns staff, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or submit a message via our contact page and we'll get back to you as soon as we can. We're a small and scrappy team building a huge movement for change, so be patient with us if we don't get back to you immediately. In the meantime, please check out the other resources on this page, and we look forward to speaking with you soon.
