Stop watching your city continue to decline and feeling like you’re not part of a solution, and start feeling empowered and equipped with the knowledge and tools you need to be a positive force in your community.

Be Part of the Solution

We know you’re frustrated with the way your city is built. It can be difficult to understand why the “improvements” and "responses" aren’t really working.

That’s why, over the last decade, we’ve been conducting presentations and trainings for hundreds of thousands of people across the country, and why thousands have already taken our courses.

How You Can Take Action

1. Explore the courses on this site and pick the one that’s the best fit for you.

2. Sign up.

3. Take the courses and connect with fellow participants along the way.

Don't stand by and watch while the place you love falls into decline. It's easy to feel disconnected from the processes that shape our cities.

At Strong Towns, we believe you can be part of shaping a more financially resilient future for your community.
