Attend every session and invite everyone in your community to participate.

Increased skills and tools, both virtual and real world, to cocreate a learning community that is better equipped to tackle local economic and health issues in a holistic, collaborative, cross-sector manner. 

Depending on how many people from your community participate, you may create a detailed strategic 3-month game plan for tackling an issue or develop a game plan to engage additional partners.

Do Tank, an international design thinking firm, has developed custom tools they will use to guide Montana communities through the strategic planning process to build and strengthen their healthy communities efforts.

Each community team will progress at different speeds in the four Do Tank sessions. Depending on how many people from your town participate, you may create a detailed 3-month game plan for tackling an issue or create a general game plan to engage additional partners. When you register you will tell us the community/town/city you want to be clustered with and we will try to sort attendees accordingly.

If your work is not localized to a community or your partners cannot gather for the session, you will still receive an in-depth training about how to create your community plan. You will learn the skills required to develop a strategic, inclusive community plan in the future.

Anyone interested in a more vibrant and healthy community! Do you want more businesses in town? Do you need better access to health care? Do you want nicer roads and sidewalks? Do you want improved playgrounds and trails? Do you want improved collaboration in your town?

If you answered yes to any of these, than you should attend the Virtual Journey. And you should invite everyone you know to attend.

Attendees are strongly encouraged to invite others from their community‚ÄĒespecially those outside of your industry or community sector. Examples include: local city/town clerk, commissioner, planner, health provider, engineer, business leader, historian, researcher, educator, developer and legislator. We also encourage participation from state agencies, associations and non-profits.
