Cornell Cooperative Extension's Community Development programs promote active participation that enables all community members to learn about and understand community issues (including economic, social, and environmental) and how various decisions could affect their lives.
Every community has the potential to be enhanced by recognizing the critical role open space, agriculture, tradition, culture and heritage has on its identity, viability and quality of life.
We partner with Cornell's Landscape Architecture Dept. to advance place-based responses to local problems, and to advance sustainable design.
Stronger Economies Together (SET) strengthens the capacity of rural communities to strategically builds on the strengths of their region.
