The challenges and opportunities of today and tomorrow require us to think across lines – political, geographic, organizational, generational and others – and form partnerships to create innovative solutions. Whatever lies ahead, we can break the typical boundaries and work together to achieve more. At the 14th annual Open Space Conference on May 16, 2013 in San Francisco's Presidio we will address the following questions:
- How can we create collective impact?
- What are examples of multi-faceted problems that are being solved in collaborative ways?
- How can we work together as a region to overcome the challenges and seize the opportunities ahead?
In addition, we will facilitate conversations between conference participants that aim to inspire and connect. This will be a dynamic and interactive conference that deepens the regional conversation about protecting and connecting people to the land.
Our keynote speaker will be Major General Anthony Jackson, the new Director of California State Parks. Major General Jackson is the 19th Director of California State Parks, and was appointed by Governor Brown on November 13, 2012 and sworn-in by Natural Resources Agency Secretary John Laird on November 16, 2012.
