Episode 4: Putting Community Back in Community Economic Development

Glen Ohlund has been a Community Economic Development Practitioner for more than 25 years. During that time he has been involved with efforts to help build affordable housing, to establish community based agriculture, to assist the tenants of mobile home parks with the purchase of their parks to provide them with home ownership and stabilize their housing costs and to develop sustainable housing. His formula for success has been to respect people and to recognize that creating sustainable change requires listening to all of the voices within a community and to work to build solutions based on shared values and consensus.
