A Community Discussion

Let’s talk about making Thunder Bay Safe, Sustainable, Liveable, Resilient

A bottom-up revolution to rebuild prosperity

March 7, 2023
Italian Cultural Centre

In this presentation, Charles Marohn will highlight a path to community prosperity that’s as unique as our community. Using an innovative, hands-on approach, this presentation showcases why so many towns in North America are struggling financially despite decades of robust growth.

This presentation is part community conversation, part lecture from an expert, and the catalyst we need for Thunder Bay to become financially stronger.

Charles Marohn is the author of Strong Towns: A Bottom-Up Revolution to Rebuild American Prosperity and Confessions of a Recovering Engineer: Transportation for a Strong Town. He hosts the Strong Towns Podcast and is a primary writer for Strong Towns’ web content. He has presented Strong Towns concepts in hundreds of cities and towns across North America
