As a workshop component, “20 Clues to Rural Community Survival” is one of the Heartland Center’s most popular and effective training tools. The list of vital characteristics provides an “ideal” benchmark against which people can measure their own community. It moves people naturally from theory, to strategy, to action.
The "Clues to Rural Community Survival Workshop" workbook helps local leaders identify their community’s unique strengths, weaknesses and opportunities. This is a terrific exercise to pull a community together or to kick off an action planning agenda!
