The Context for Advancing Regional Equity

Building Shared Perspectives: Intersection of Smart Growth Regional Equity, and Environmental Justice

The smart growth, regional equity, and environmental justice movements all seek to influence regional development decisions. Tensions can emerge regarding goals, activities, priorities, and language. This session investigated how some of the nationís most progressive organizations have started to blend disparate interests to promote more equitable and inclusive metropolitan areas. Advocates shared how they address differences, resolve conflicts, and unite around a common cause.
