Inspirational Stories about Creating a Sustainable, Vibrant, Healthy, and Just Region | February 9, 2017
Storytelling is our way of expressing the soul of our community to one another. Stories expose our beliefs, emotions, and vulnerabilities that can resonate with people in ways that facts and statistics can’t. Stories foster empathy, remind us of what it means to be human, and challenge us to be the change we seek. During our second annual Storytelling Inspire Speakers Series event, we heard stories from citizens who are working to create sustainable, vibrant, healthy, and just places for us all to live, work, learn, and play.
The evening’s theme was “Loving Your Place.” This Moth-style and TED-like event dared us to dream big about what is possible for our communities, projects, and places. Our presenters are creating places that help our communities thrive, make us healthier and more vibrant, and are designed for everyone. We were inspired by the amazing work that Pittsburgh citizens are doing to make this community a place we can all love.
