This spring, CommunityWorks! and the Phinney Neighborhood Association (PNA) invite you to join us for our first Eco-Summit on the Ridge for the Phinney-Greenwood neighborhood.

The purpose of this Summit is to bring neighbors together for interactive learning, creating a caring and action-based community around the climate crisis and environmental justice.

This Eco-Summit will steer away from the paralyzing fear and anxiety we hear in the news. Instead, we will be turning our attention toward realizing actionable solutions and inspire working together; making a difference toward equity and positive change. For more information, visit the CommunityWorks website or email info@community.works

Barbara Young founded CommunityWorks! in the fall of 2020, in the midst of multiple national crises—the pandemic, racial injustice, political polarization, and the climate crisis—as an offering of hope and action. It was born out of the belief that, individually and collectively, we harbor limitless possibilities amid the vast untapped potential in all life on this planet. Challenging times and setbacks are an opportunity for learning and growth where old paradigms crumble and new ones emerge.

But we can’t do it alone. By coming together with our shared dreams and embodying qualities of hope, determination, perseverance, equality, and commitment, we begin the shift—one dream, one community at time. Our current socio-economic, political, and climate crisis provides a catalyst for needed change. Building community and working together we can make a difference! CommunityWorks! invites you to join our circles and events as we reimagine a resilient and vibrant future and together create positive change.
