The event will bring together local, municipal, and regional leaders involved in policy decisions and designing and building safe, healthy communities for children and families.

Goals/Objectives

- Emphasize the role of local partnerships, strategies, and successes, including business engagement strategies, that contribute to livable and healthy cities for children and youth.
- Opportunity to network and learn about how leaders at any level can make a difference.
