The program will include a short presentation that illustrates how an economy based primarily on coal also has significant social costs and long-term liabilities. Following the presentation, together we will explore alternatives that can lay the groundwork for vibrant and diversified economies in places historically tied to the “boom and bust” cycle of coal.
- Bring your ideas for diversifying the economy in your town and county.
- Learn what other coal-mining communities are doing to build on their history and resources to create jobs and prosperity.
- Take home a fact sheet that you can share with your friends, family and colleagues.
