The Importance of Truth + Transparency for Living Communities
Track: Place + Locus

Living communities projects are often quilted within existing communities, challenging the design team to create innovative built systems as well as resilient community systems. Truth and transparency are key to activating these communities and allowing them to take ownership of living community visions. This session profiles successful communities and gives tools for project teams to help leverage building projects into longer term community capacity. Our session will focus on how a commitment to transparency can help develop community strength in decision-making, knowledge development, legal structure and financial resources. This presentation will include case studies and a toolkit of innovative engagement methods that build capacity for living community planning.
