Abstract

The landscapes we inherit are instrumental to the urban ecosystems we study, conservation policies we advance, and collaborations we create. Yet often overlooked is the historical 'lock in' that keeps us from making swift progress, particularly on massive challenges like climate change. By unpacking the ways in which we have changed the landscape through policies, plans, and programs -even as far back as 100 years ago, we can begin to 'recenter' our conservation that ensure equitable and verdant cities. This talk will provide a framework for examining the role of historical planning policies -specifically redlining -current impacts on ecosystem services and community health, and provide practical guidelines for collectively advancing our conservation goals.
