Creating Connection in Community Spaces

So often, our modern built environment facilitates efficiency and consumerism but fails to support our need for belonging and connection. Join this session to explore how the social infrastructure of communities—shared public spaces—impact social connection. Examples from across the country will showcase parks, housing, libraries, and other types of social infrastructure. Participants will gain ideas for how to create community spaces that promote human flourishing.
