Regional Collaboration: Learning to Think and Act Like a Region -- March 29, 30, 2004

Lincoln Institute of Land Policy

A growing number of land-related issues-ranging from sprawl and threats to environmental values to social and fiscal inequities to economic development and globalization-transcend political and jurisdictional boundaries. These issues are most effectively addressed at a regional level, defined by a unique place or a specific problem. In response, people in the public, private and nonprofit sectors are moved to create regional initiatives for a variety of purposes.

While some of these efforts augment existing government institutions, others are more ad hoc in nature, involving people with diverse interests and viewpoints in collaborative forums. Whether formal or informal, regional initiatives provide public opportunities to formulate and execute plans involving social, economic and environmental issues that encompass multiple jurisdictions, sectors and disciplines. Using a combination of case studies, lectures, and hands-on excercises, this two day course provides a conceptual framework and practical skills to initiate, design, coordinate, and sustain regional initiatives.
