The National Civic League is partnering in 2014 with Community Commons to celebrate 25 years of Healthy Communities and the ideas embodied by the movement. Community Commons is an interactive mapping, networking, and learning utility for the broad-based healthy, sustainable, and livable communities’ movement.
The Healthy Communities movement, with its emphasis on cross-sector collaboration, civic engagement and transforming the settings and environments that are the drivers of health, has inspired hundreds of U.S. communities to think and act in fundamentally different ways.
The National Civic League was an important catalyst in the early years of the movement, and this year's All-America City Awards will have a Healthy Communities focus.
