Strong Towns President Chuck Marohn will present The Curbside Chat as part of the Nova Scotia Federation of Municipalities Annual Conference
In the Curbside Chat, we explain, in plain language, how so many North American cities have found themselves in decline after decades of “growth.” The problem lies in the current model of development — one which values short-term gains over long-term prosperity. To strengthen our cities and ensure their economic success, we must look to traditional ways of building cities. In this presentation, we show how active citizens, local officials and design professionals can change the negative trajectory in their towns and help them to become more resilient — no matter what challenges lie ahead.
This core Strong Towns presentation is a game-changer for communities looking to grow more resilient in an uncertain future.
