Civic Boot Camp: Livable Neighborhoods
Created in 2015, Livable Neighborhoods Civic Boot Camp addresses Seattle’s commitment to sustainable neighborhoods. We explore green space, food access, historical and cultural preservation, transit and walkability, and housing and development. The focus is on Seattle’s fastest growing neighborhood, Cascade-South Lake Union, and tackles issues of change in the area's economy, demographics, ecology and culture.
What is Civic Boot Camp?
Civic Boot Camp is a unique neighborhood experience. A chance to grow your professional network! A training on how to make a difference! And more!
Attend Civic Boot Camp and in one day you'll uncover the regions's rich history, connect with leaders and learn how to get involved with the issues that matter to you.
