Lisa Nisenson and Sarah Lewis from GreaterPlaces join GovLove to talk about how they are using a card game to help people talk about their communities. They are the minds behind ‘Cards Against Urbanity’ and their next project will work to help communities engage with citizens in their planning efforts through games and more.

Lisa and Sarah mentioned their next project, Cards For Urbanity, which is a tool for planners, local government administrators and those passionate about their community to describe the community they want to see. Learn more here: KickStarter.

In this bonus edition of GovLove, we’ll learn from West Linn City Councilor Jenni Tan about NLC, ACYPL, IRI, APAMO and what these groups have to do with ELGL. That’s right – it’s the alphabet soup edition of GovLove! All of these organizations are doing amazing things for public sector leaders. Let’s learn more from Councilor Tan about these groups and also about how ELGL members can get involved with their efforts.

(Here’s a hint – many of these acronyms repesent group that provide for international exchanges for public sector leaders to learn more about the world and forms of government. If you’ve ever wanted to travel as part of your local government career, take a minute to learn from Jenni!)
