Most of us like to feel connected — connected to our family, our community and the other things that are important to us. Unfortunately, we’ve been building our communities in ways that make it more difficult to stay connected to the things we value most.

If we want to shape a better world, it starts with improving our connections. If you want sidewalks in your neighborhood, work with your neighbors to get them built. If you want better access to parks, get connected to the parks department and local transportation authorities. Shape Your World provides opportunities to connect with other involved residents both online and in your neighborhoods, so together you can create a safer, healthier and more connected community.
