Listen to the Strong Towns podcast and you’ll hear us sign-off with that phrase. This has been the idea from the beginning; we all need to do whatever we can to try and make things better.  But what, exactly, can one person do?

Meaningful change happens one person at a time, neighbor to neighbor. Being a Strong Citizen means:

  1. Doing everything you can, as an individual, to make yourself stronger, more resilient, and more adaptable, and
  2. Sharing this experience with your friends and neighbors when they naturally become interested in the things you're doing. This is how strong communities naturally form.
