Creating Vibrant Communities is both a book by architect, urban designer and philanthropist, Dean Landy as well as an online learning and knowledge sharing community for everyone involved in the urban development process.
One of the key barriers to achieving better urban development outcomes explored in the book, is lack of communication and collaboration between government, design, private sector and community stakeholders. The Creating Vibrant Communities online learning community is designed to remove these barriers.
It is a virtual place where users are able to contribute and access shared resources posted by their industry peers, access fresh thinking as well as a wide range of people with specific expertise that relates to achieving better urban development outcomes.
In the near future, it will be a place where passionate people can collaborate to solve problems they may be facing with regard to creating vibrant communities on actual projects.
