Myra Moss Joining several other session presenters from the North Central region, Myra Moss, professor and educator, CD, OSU Extension, will present Building Sustainable Rural Communities during the live webinar.

 Rural communities guided by a shared vision, inclusion, and long-term multi-dimensional strategies are often better positioned to achieve their community development goals. Incorporating sustainability concepts into community development work can provide a forum to identify and find common ground among different, and sometimes conflicting, interests in a community, leading to more widely accepted outcomes. This presentation will highlight best practices in sustainable community building that have been used in Ohio.
