Building Sustainable Communities; Global Forces, Local Focus

September 28 & 29 - Cornell University


How do global trends in immigration, climate change, fiscal stress, food systems, and inequality impact local communities?

How are communities in New York State responding?

What new research, policies & practices enhance community sustainability?

CaRDI's annual Community Development Institute focuses on critical pieces of the community development process, and is designed for a diverse audience of local community leaders, extension educators, researchers, practitioners, and policymakers at multiple levels. Each year we highlight a different theme, bringing presenters and discussants together from across New York State to share the latest research, innovative approaches, policy recommendations, and practical perspectives.
