Community Attributes

Community can be found in surprising places. We typically think of our neighborhoods, towns and gathering places, where art and science integrate to create strong place-based communities. Community can also be found in interconnected networks throughout the world, forming bonds between people of common interests and backgrounds.

Attributes make communities special and distinctive. Understanding community attributes requires an appreciation for individuals and details, and an awareness of how they contribute to a larger story. Attributes can also be measured and mapped, and when carefully analyzed can reveal surprsing insights about communities and strategies.
