Cities at center stage
We are immersed in a wide ranging conversation about cities at CityLab 2014 in Los Angeles, hearing from thought leaders in the public, private, and non-profit sectors on the challenges of more sustainable and equitable metropolitan regions. The next stop is Detroit and the Meeting of the Minds, an annual convening of practitioners, civic leaders, and technology innovators with which the Lincoln Institute has been longstanding partners. The first day will include a conversation about incremental change and big plans in Legacy Cities, post-industrial areas struggling with population and jobs loss.
Conservation leader Jean Hocker named Kingsbury Browne Fellow
Jean Hocker, a former president of the Land Trust Alliance and longtime board member at the Lincoln Institute, was named as the recipient of the Kingsbury Browne Fellowship and Conservation Leadership Award at the Land Trust Alliance's Rally 2014: The National Land Conservation Conference, in Providence. The announcement was part of a busy fall for the Lincoln Institute on the topic of land conservation, including the National Workshop on Large Landscape Conservation in Washington D.C. October 23-24 and the IUCN World Parks Congress in Sydney, Australia, where a new book, Conservation Catalysts: The Academy as Nature’s Agent, will be launched.
