insight2050 Academy

Central Ohio is growing – so is the insight2050 Academy!

Announcing the insight2050 Academy for Civic Leaders
Tuesday Evenings | October 3, 10, 17

The third class of the insight2050 Academy will enroll in October for a new program aimed at civic leaders, community activists, homeowners association members, representatives of non-profit organizations, business leaders, and others who want to understand the context of and reasons for the development challenges the region is facing.

The Academy will focus on the region’s population trends, changing demographics, and lifestyle choices of Millennials and retiring Baby Boomers. Leaders from across Central Ohio will share best practices, models from Central Ohio communities, and the economics of our development patterns to prepare Academy scholars to find the best ways to accommodate changes in their towns and neighborhoods.
