PlanET is an ambitious process to imagine the future of the East Tennessee region and then to chart a path to reach a shared vision. Initiated in 2011, the 30-month process focused on Anderson, Blount, Knox, Loudon, and Union counties and its greatest legacies lie in the relationships that been formed and growing regional connections that have been established.
Videos produced by Austin East High School students as part of the Digital Storytelling Project presented by Plan East Tennessee with support from the Carpertbag Theater, Inc and Project GRAD Knoxville.
Two videos highlight how an East Tennessee resident and a long time, family-owned business have, in very different ways, adapted their skills and business to remain viable and competitive in evolving markets.
Solutions that make our communities more vibrant and livable places appear across the region in new and unexpected ways. Hear stories from other East Tennesseans as they relate their experiences and share their visions for future that were captured as part of the PlanET's kickoff activities
