11/21 - Ready to Diversify: Lessons Learned from Coal Communities Across the Country

November 14, 2019

As communities and regions across the country address the impacts caused by the downturn in the coal industry, places that are actively pursuing economic diversification opportunities have become better positioned to take on the challenges that lie ahead. Please join us for Ready to Diversify: Lessons Learned from Coal Communities Across the Country, on November 21, at Noon CST with Brett Schwartz, Program Manager for the National Association of Counties (NACo), and Jack Morgan (Associate Director, National Association of Development Organizations (NADO) Research Foundation).

 

During this webinar, learn how rural coal-reliant communities in the West and in Appalachia are setting a new course in a variety of ways, including through workforce development and retraining, entrepreneurship, outdoor recreation, cultural heritage, renewable energy, and more.  Jack Morgan from the National Association of Counties and Brett Schwartz from the NADO Research Foundation have spent the past five years visiting and collaborating with coal-reliant counties and regions as they work to build stronger economies by tapping into local assets and strengths. While every place is unique with its own set of challenges and opportunities, these case studies can serve as inspiration for communities across the country as they explore ways to create a more prosperous future.
