Leading Community Building Emerging Planning Concepts For Diverse Communities (CM | 2.0)
May 13, 2011 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
This session will be a forum in which experiences in building more unified and integrated communities are shared and participants are given an opportunity for questions, comments and feedback.
This forum contains two sections – a presentation and a panel discussion – on the tools and strategies that are most promising to respond to the problem of communities being perhaps diverse but still not integrated. It has been documented through numerous national studies that even within diverse jurisdictions housing, schools and civic realms remain largely separated by race, ethnicity and/or socioeconomics. This reality is both inequitable and costly (and no longer just a burden on some groups – it harms us all). OPEN has worked for over 40 years developing practical local solutions and we’d like to share our approach to tackling this issue, describe a theoretical model and present case studies of integrated successes. We especially want feedback from you on how to expand the toolkit and strategies.
Takes place in Room 113.
