From climate change and adaptation, to economic development and the arts, foundations and cities are working closer than ever to identify areas where private and public interests intersect, and to produce change for the communities they represent. In this session, learn the various ways in which the philanthropic community is partnering with cities, and better understand how your community can lean on these partnership opportunities to revitalize civic spaces in your own city or town.
