The Thrive Rural Framework is a new tool from Aspen Institutes’ Community Strategies Group (Aspen CSG) to help you take stock, target action, and gauge progress on equitable rural prosperity. It focuses on what needs to be true in local communities and in larger systems to produce things like shared thinking and fair-minded goals, the readiness of people and leadership to act, and the organizational structures to learn and act together.
The framework calls for an asset-based approach and working across local and system levels of change to clarify and address the underlying factors that must be true to create prosperous rural communities.
Join us as co-executive directors of Aspen CSG, Bonita A. Robertson-Hardy and Chris Estes, walk us through how to utilize the framework as the starting point of a shared approach and as a way to engage on vital issues to achieve greater rural prosperity for all.
This will be a virtual session, connection details will be sent upon registration.
