Through our Vibrant Northeast Ohio initiative, the Northeast Ohio Sustainable Communities Consortium (NEOSCC) asked you young people to dig deep and let us know what you believe makes a vibrant community—and answer you did. Over 330 participants in April and May 2012 at five different venues pooled together to address three topics about their community:
- What is working well
- What existing programs or organizations can help turn our communities around
- How successes can be scaled and built upon
The quality and scope of responses we received was not only impressive,but incredibly inspiring. Participants at each location offered differing opinions on what makes for a vibrant region, but there were also striking similarities across the board. These are presented in the following pdf.
