Kinder Institute Forum: Carol Coletta
Carol Coletta, a senior fellow with the Kresge Foundation’s American Cities Practice,will discuss reimagining the civic commons—an initiative focused on revitalizing and connecting public places to form more creative, inclusive cities.
Due to underinvestment and apathy, our civic assets—publicly shared places such as parks, plazas, trails and libraries—are no longer connecting residents and anchoring neighborhoods. Research shows that Americans are spending less time together in social settings, trust each other less and interact less with others whose experiences are different. Houstonians in particular, according to the 2018 Houston Civic Health Index, have higher levels of mistrust than the national average, and one-fifth of Greater Houston residents report that they never talk to their neighbors.
