Community Wellbeing

Learn about community projects and get ideas about what you can do too.

TThe Community Wellbeing project connects people who are looking for local initiatives and projects with people who are conducting them. In cities, towns and counties, people all over the United States are working to create communities that honor, respect, value, welcome and nurture all people, nature and the Earth, our home. Their work too often is invisible in the media.

Every week on the CreateNet blog, we post information about local projects and links to learn more. We also include interviews with people about how they advocate in their community and their suggestions for what others can do too.

Another resource for ideas and information about local work is the CreateNet Pinterest site. While you’re there, check out inspirational quotes and personal wellbeing tips.
