Stories connect us. They help us grow and evolve. Stories can teach us about our history and help us make a difference in our world by broadening perspectives and transforming who we are.
Tell us about your idea or story. Ideas are highlights or snapshots of what your community is doing. Stories provide detailed information on a project, or an approach used to make your community a healthier place.
Sharing your great work helps inspire others and builds on what you have learned about creating healthy spaces and places.
You can also share tools, resources, programs, funding and learning opportunities that you have developed or use.
Do you have an idea, story or resource to share?
Tell us more about what you have to share and a team member will review and follow up with you for more information.
