On August 14th 2013, the Pennsylvania Convention Center was home to the first annual PhillyRising Conference. The conference provided citizens with tools to improve their communities through interactive workshops, presentations and information tables. The conference also rewarded community heroes for individual efforts in their respective neighborhoods. The video above highlights the conference and the community heroes who were awarded. Next week, the PhillyInnovates blog will post the “Community Hero” video which features conference interviews from some of PhillyRising’s most valuable partners. Please enjoy and share this video. We hope to see you next year!
