Episode 21: Conversations change Campbell

"Well, that's just Campbell." A group of local champions in Campbell, Minnesota — a West Central, Minnesota town of 158 people — heard this phrase now and then, but they thought Campbell could do better. They decided to start a conversation about how their town could do better, and become a more appealing place to visit and live. Hear how they led their community through a series of conversations that led to a big change, both in community appearance and pride.

“Community members were invested because they saw that change was possible.”

— Shana Klindt
