What is a "healthy community?" What successful strategies are communities using to collaborate across sectors to promote healthy people and strong economies? What are the opportunities for strengthening the interdependence between urban and rural economies? How are banks, CDFIs, philanthropy, and others investing to foster equitable access to health and prosperity for all? Why is investing in environmental sustainability important for people and places?
