Is your land trust struggling to attract a younger, more diverse demographic to your board and membership?
If so, you are not alone! With all land trusts striving to meet their mission of perpetuity, many are contemplating succession planning and the challenges of organizational sustainability—all against a backdrop of our changing climate, addressing community needs, and shifting demographics.
Join us for a conversation among millennial and gen z conservation leaders on the relevance of land trusts, the key roles land trusts can play in their communities, becoming more equitable, and how these and other issues may help to attract the next generation of leaders to land conservation and your organization.
Bring your questions and ideas to this interactive discussion on passing the land conservation baton from one generation to the next.
