CDLI meet-ups

CDLI hosts regular Meet-ups for anyone interested in helping to build better communities and neighborhoods to learn from one another, generally the last Tuesday of each month. Regular Meet-ups usually take a break for the Summer. In the Summer we try to be more creative and often meet up outdoors. Here are some Meet-up topics we will be exploring in the coming months:

  • Summer Meet Up/ neighborhood tour: Creating communities you want to live in – 21 August, 2017 
  • Building better brains to build better communities – 26 September, 2017. 
  • 2017 Big Meet Up - 4 November, 2017
