What’s healthy about our community? What’s not healthy about it? How can we improve it? These questions were posed to patrons of the Oakland Museum of California at the institution’s free First Sunday on December 2, 2012.
I also solicited an opinion on Oakland from a man on the street in downtown Berkeley.
I found many beautiful things about Oakland – beauty that helps make our city a healthy place to live. I visited Jack London Square on the evening of the annual Christmas tree lighting, and took a ride on the #14 bus – safe, clean, and surrounded by nice people – heading down International Boulevard on a sunny Sunday afternoon.
Hi Mr. Owens,
I’m interested in learning more about this series of videos that you produced. If you have some time over the holidays, I would love to chat with you about your work. I work for a local community development nonprofit, and we’re also asking what makes healthy communities, and we’re trying to leverage the work that we do in real estate development and management and social service provision to create healthier communities.
If you have some free time, please feel free to email me, or call me at 510.287.5353 x338.
