But to solve our most intractable problems, all 34,000 communities in the U.S. need to integrate practices based on ACEs science. The fastest way is to start and grow an ACEs initiative, and we’ve got the tools and guidelines for that in our new Growing Resilient Communities 2.1, which debuts today.
I'm super grateful to Mcr City Council for developing this initiative as the results are beginning to show, and ( at last ) this is turning heads - see below I'm even more grateful to Gareth Nixon, the lead for this project here in Manchester.
