Save Your City is an inspired and powerful must-read. Our democracy is in peril and this book delivers the right message, by the right person, at the right time.
- SAM CHAISE
Save Your City is an absolute must-read for everyone involved in local government and engaged citizens. It combines the philosophy of Ancient Greece and Rome with the challenges of modern governance in an increasingly uncivil society where the notion of "love thy neighbour", once anchored in biblical and secular culture, has been replaced in many boardrooms by a spirit of "what's in it for me?" I commend it to you.

I applaud Diane Kalen-Sukra for devising a blueprint for community change. Every community leader should read Save Your City -- pen in hand -- and then emphatically implement the strategies in detail.

Toxic culture is eroding our sense of belonging, community and well-being. Our capacity to collaborate and innovate together is also being undermined by the rising incivility and divisiveness.
We need each other to address the complex challenges facing our cities and communities -- from the infrastructure deficit to climate change, homelessness, mental health and addiction issues. In order to thrive, our local democracies depend on our ability to revive the art of living and working well together.
In this thought-provoking and inspiring book, Diane Kalen-Sukra empowers community leaders and citizens to be part of the solution. She demonstrates what's involved by taking readers on a journey from Bullyville to Sustainaville, including an eye-opening visit to classical antiquity.
The successful journey includes a renaissance of civic values and civic education as vital to fostering the type of culture that can sustain us, our democracy and our planet.
