Communityness Webinar

June 28, 2017 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Communityness" is the feeling that people experience when they feel connected to the place they live. It is the feeling of being a part of something larger, connected to your neighbors and fellow community members, a feeling of engagement and the sense of responsibility for the community at large. Cities and towns that foster a sense of "communityness" benefit in a myriad of ways including more engaged citizens, healthier politics, and increased talent retention and attraction. This session will explore this concept in three parts. First, what it means, and how to identify a place that has it. Second, the benefits of "communityness," including health, social, engagement, politics, and economics. The final part will explore what community leaders can do to try and foster a sense of "communityness."
