Chelsea Green Sponsors Rocky Mountain Land Use Institute’s 20th Anniversary Conference

Chelsea Green is a proud sponsor of the Rocky Mountain Land Use Institute’s 20th Anniversary Conference which will take place March 3-4 in Denver, Colorado.

Celebrated environmental activist and writer Rick Bass will be a keynote speaker (check out his glowing praise for Diane Wilson’s forthcoming Diary of An Eco-Outlaw, by the way), and lucky participants will be able to take advantage of workshops on everything from medical marijuana and transportation to sustainable communities and land conservation in the West.

Most conference events are scheduled to take place at the University of Denver’s Sturm College of Law. More information about the event can be found on the conference page here.

About the Conference:

The Rocky Mountain Land Use Institute’s 20 Anniversary presents a singular opportunity to explore both change and continuity in the region’s communities and landscapes over the past two decades while beginning to look ahead to the next twenty years, to the Next West.An extraordinary confluence of forces is changing the way communities across the West and the nation plan, grow and define their success. Climate change, technology, globalization, urbanization and a new wave of immigration are challenging old rules and patterns of development – both physical and economic.As the region begins to emerge from the current economic crisis, professionals and citizens alike will need to understand the forces driving our land use and development patterns, forces that cut across geography, disciplines, fields and sectors. Like never before, they will be called upon to design new models that join prosperity, community and ecology in a bold vision tailored to the needs of a rapidly changing region in a radically changing world.
About the Rocky Mountain Land Use Institute:
The Rocky Mountain Land Use Institute seeks to elevate the law, policy and practice of sustainable development in the West to promote nature-friendly, prosperous and equitable communities. Through innovative research, education and professional development programs and its renowned annual conference, the Institute trains and connects students and professionals across disciplines, sectors and regions to build the sustainable development field while creating new possibilities for the future of the West’s landscapes and livelihoods.
