Living Cities Introduces New Urban Practice Toolbox

With its 2015 annual report, entitled #HereAndNow, Living Cities introduces a “New Urban Practice” toolbox that brings community developers and change agents a fresh set of ideas and resources. Living Cities collected innovations and solutions from different cities, aggregated them into a set of toolkits and made them available online so that everyone can learn from these experiences.

The toolbox focuses on proven, cross-sector approaches that are improving the lives of low-income people, and is organized into six different toolkits:

  • Cultivating and Connecting Leaders
  • Expanding Impact Investing
  • Advancing Racial Equity and Inclusion
  • Doubling Down on Data and Results
  • Engaging Community
  • Harnessing Technology

Individual tools include StriveTogether’s Community Impact Report Card, Code for America’s Open Data Toolkit, Low Income Investment Fund’s Social Impact Calculator and the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s Guidelines for Authentic Conversations About Race.
