Chapel Hill 2020 Themes

Print

Chapel Hill 2020 is organized around several main themes. The themes were developed from the community’s input at our visioning sessions and form the basis of the working-group discussions. Themes are a way to organize the conversation and the goals and action steps of the Chapel Hill 2020 plan.

The theme groups meet in separate classrooms during the working sessions and then meet together at reporting out sessions to discuss their work and reconcile differences as the plan progresses. If you can’t make a meeting, please leave your comments on the 2020 Buzz blog.
