Community Strategies Group

The Aspen Institute Community Strategies Group (CSG) connects, motivates and equips local leaders to build more prosperous regions and advance those living on the economic margins.

We do so by designing and facilitating action-inducing peer learning among organizations, leaders and policymakers and by providing strategic guidance to community leaders and supporters to sharpen their focus and strategy. CSG produces tools, frameworks, analysis and stories to help communities make smart decisions, while managing short and long-term initiatives that catalyze innovation and progress and building networks to spread good ideas and useful lessons.
