The challenges of community planning extend beyond American cities and regions into villages, cities, and neighborhoods world-wide. In summer 2009, CRP students conducted a viability and vitality assessment of a community school in Nairobi, Kenya. They worked closely with community members and conducted field visits, sensitized parties to the process, interviewed a wide range of stakeholders, and held a community forum.

This student-led City Forum will focus on the students’ work, the challenges they faced, and the lessons learned from this experience.

Panelists:
Robyn T. Emerson, CRP student and board member of Providence Ministries. Robyn has worked in Kenya on the Nation's national development plan, VISION 2030 and with other national organizations as a consultant developing strategic plans and their monitoring and evaluation plans.

Nathan Laughlin, CRP Student and lead engineer for the Lower Colorado River Authority.

S. Bennett Powell, a CRP student.
