Using Open Space to Deliver Economic, Social and Environmental Benefits
Demand for open space is on the rise, and many people have moved out of cities to relieve stress and socially distance outdoors. At the same time, communities face significant challenges related to equity, public health, economic activity and environmental sustainability. This presentation will discuss how planners and community leaders can meet the increased demand for open space while addressing broader social, environmental and economic needs. It will also provide strategies for rural and suburban leaders looking to attract remote workers on the move and strategies for urban leaders looking to retain their population through nature-based placemaking.
