Save Your City is a brilliant book. Practical, grounded in historical lessons, provocative and right on. This is a timely wake-up call to action for all of us who act and live our values. Civility and respect for the golden rule is not dead. Enjoy this must-read.
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.
How toxic culture is killing community.
Journey back to classical antiquity for lessons on civic values & democracy.
Diane was born with the gift of encouragement and desire for everyone around her to thrive and meet their potential.
Her core belief is that as social beings, we flourish in healthy sustainable communities where good governance, servant leadership and compassionate culture support the well-being of all.
