Vital Communities works to strengthen those networks so that our region—69 distinct towns and cities spanning two states, with no single dominant metro area—can thrive. Our staff specializes in convening for change: bringing people together to size up and address our challenges. We have evolved as a hub of initiatives, resources, and working groups in such areas as business vitality, food and farming, energy, transportation, climate change, leadership, housing, and outdoor learning.
