Proposals Due for 2023 Community Development Society Conference


Portland State University and Oregon State University are hosting the 2023 Community Development Society Conference in Portland July 16-19. 

CDS is a unique organization that brings practitioners and academics together to share the best in Community Development research and practice. The conference offers opportunities to develop friendships, expand networks, discover resources, and learn from others across the continent and around the globe.

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.
