Julian Agyeman, professor and chair in the Department of Urban and Environmental Planning at Tufts, recently blogged about scaling up inclusion and diversity in environmental organizations:
How should conservation organizations in the U.S. and elsewhere respond to the demographic and cultural shifts that are unfolding and will gain pace? What strategies for the inclusion of a more diverse base should be developed now that this is not only a moral question, but one of organizational effectiveness and even survival?
Agyeman is a member of the Stewardship Council of the Masschusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation.
The Green Streets Initiative blogged about how four Urban and Environmental Planning and Policy graduate students — Jaclyn DeVore, Emily Earle, Alex Krogh-Grabbe and Danilo Morales — will be helping them over the course of the spring semester for their field project seminar:
Working with professors Rusty Russell, Ph.D., and Rachel Brandt, Ph.D., as well as the Green Streets and Somerville’s Shape Up Somerville staff, the students have come up with a proposal for a Green Streets field project.
During the spring semester, Devore, Earle, Krogh-Grabbe, and Morales will be looking at regionalizing Walk/Ride Days in the Boston region. They will create a marketing and PR plan and other tools, based on research they will conduct.
