You asked and we are answering.

Through Principles in Action we will share case studies of innovations that are moving the needle on the ground—from unique ways to redress inequities and engage the public in participatory planning, to innovative housing and community models large and small.

Social engagements around each case study provide opportunities to dig deeper on these innovations by conversing with the principal/s behind the work.
