Lunch & Learn: Municipalities in Transition
September 27 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm PDT
Join Ana Huertas and Cristiano Bottone from the international Municipalities in Transition project to explore their framework for supporting community-municipal collaboration.
The main aim of the Municipalities in Transition project is to develop and test a structured way for municipalities and local governments to connect with their communities and respond to the great challenges of this historical period adopting a systemic view and methodologies inspired by the Transition Towns movement approach and learnings. The MiT framework draws from case studies in Italy, Spain, Portugal, and Brazil.
This lunch and learn is being offered as part of the 2021 Regenerative Communities Summit. Please click here to learn more and register using our pay-what-you-can donation-based system to participate.
