Editor’s note: A Better World Is Possible is a new Indy feature that offers snapshots of creative undertakings, community experiments, innovative municipal projects, and excursions of the imagination that offer possible interventions for the sundry challenges we face in our communities. The feature complements our regular column by Boone Shear – Becoming Human. Have you seen creative approaches to community problems or examples of things that other communities do to make life better for their residents that you think we should be talking about?

This week, we feature a short (14:10) video from the School Of Life, entitled “How to Make an Attractive City”. The video was suggested by Indy contributor Ira Bryck and speaks to many of the decisions that Amherst (though a city in name only) faces as it struggles with the possibilities of good planning and the lack thereof. The video was first released in 2015 and has been viewed over 2.5 million times. If can be watched here.
