Goal 8: Build Social Capital
Residents of the Berkshires love the small-town feel and character of its towns and cities. There are numerous opportunities to contribute to civic and topical causes through an active non-profit sector. Communities and neighborhoods are constantly adding gardens, celebrations, and fairs to engage residents, support causes, and celebrate home-town pride. While small in size, the Berkshire community has enjoyed a steady influx of immigrants from many countries as well as transplants from urban areas.
We are working as a region to:
- Promote Civic Pride and Participation
- Achieve Socially Engaged Neighborhoods and Communities
- Achieve an Inclusive Community
