Nashville Mobile Workshops to Spotlight Successful Initiatives
Nashville has announced a lineup of high-impact mobile workshops that will feature innovative and successful initiatives at the NLC Congress of Cities and Exposition, Nov. 4-7. Produced by Metro Nashville Government, the mobile workshops will provide NLC delegates a close, inside look at a range of public and public/private efforts that contribute to Nashville's success.
Learn how Nashville is investing in the future of its youngest citizens with Enriching Education for a Stronger Community, and in its economic strengths with Spotlighting City Strengths; surround yourself with artists and innovators contributing to Nashville's creative and entrepreneurial economy with Supporting a Creative Culture and Cultivating an Entrepreneurial City; witness the rebuilding of a city after a natural disaster strikes with A Thousand Year Flood: Nashville's Response and the transformation of once vacant spaces to vibrant community centers with Urban Transformations: From Vacant to Vibrant.
Nashville is increasingly recognized as one of the nation's creative centers - a city with a rapidly growing, innovative business class, thriving arts scene and culture that is attracting top young professionals. These successes are supported by a consolidated and efficient Metro government and an engaged and collaborative business community. Mobile workshops offer a chance to learn more, and learn how you might bring similar programs to your own community.
Additional mobile workshops include Coming Together for Crime Reduction (collaborations and efforts by the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department to fight crime and improve quality of life), Clean Water, Healthy Environment (Consent Decree between the U.S. EPA and Metro Nashville that helped Nashville achieve full compliance with the Clean Water Act), Innovations in the Court System (programs to reduce repeat criminal offenses, provide lasting rehabilitation effects and reduce costs to the criminal courts system) and Engaging New Americans (solutions for the increasing trajectory of immigrants moving to Nashville and the lack of support for the new languages spoken and cultures represented).
Stay tuned in the months ahead for more highlights for what's ahead for you at the 2015 Congress of Cities in Nashville. Mobile workshops provide 13 reasons - in addition to Nashville's world-famous Honkey-Tonks - to start planning your trip to the Congress of Cities today!
