A vital rural community has capacity (the ability to learn, plan, make decisions, and act together) and is realizing positive social, economic, and environmentally sustainable outcomes.
Rural residents foster more diverse, trusting and productive relationships.
Rural residents recognize, own, and act on the power they have to shape their communities future.
Rural residents and community actors create and lead the change they want to see. There is an emphasis to support communities as they plan together, create change, celebrate and reflect.
