Local Conversations are on the front lines of the Strong Towns movement. They actually put into practice the concepts, principles, and approaches that might otherwise be dismissed as merely “interesting ideas.” The interesting ideas some people consider worth thinking about, Local Conversations consider worth doing. And as they are enacting those ideas, Local Conversations are also helping to shape, refine, and grow them. 

Check out a ton of articles that we've written about the successes we're seeing with our Local Conversation groups!

Everything we at Strong Towns do to help start and support Local Conversations—all of it—is made possible by Strong Towns members. In addition, we’ve discovered that Strong Towns members are much more likely than non-members to take actions like running for local office, speaking up at city council meetings, make voting choices based on Strong Towns principles, do tactical urbanism projects, and more. There is a virtuous cycle between becoming a Strong Towns member and taking local action.
