2023 Community Development Society Conference
July 16 - July 19
Portland State University and Oregon State University are hosting the 2023 Community Development Society Conference in Portland July 16-19.
Community developers grapple with local challenges and leverage local opportunities in many different ways. We learn from each other. CDS is seeking proposals that address these strategies through the following conference tracks:
• Local Government and Tribal Action,
• Housing for All,
• Health equity,
• Youth Development,
• Food Security and Sovereignty,
• Economic Gardening, Social Enterprise, and Solidarity Economies,
• Social/Racial, Economic, and Environmental Justice Action,
• Climate Change Responses, and
• Critical Histories of Community Development.
There are many ways to participate including: Research papers, panels, project/program presentations, storytelling circles, experiential workshops, mobile workshops, and poster sessions. Not to mention the many break-out sessions and informal conversations with others.
