Majora Carter Slated as Keynote Speaker for Maine Land Conservation Conference

Maine Coast Heritage Trust has announced that Keynote Speaker for this year's Land Conservation Conference will be Majora Carter

The advance billing for her address: 

Building Proud Communities

When New York City wanted to bring 40% of its trash to her neighborhood in the South Bronx, Majora Carter pushed back. Her goal of building a prouder community grew to include more than just green space.

In partnership with local government, businesses, and neighborhood organizations she has improved opportunities for transportation, fitness and recreation, nutrition, and economic development. Majora’s lessons learned will remind us that environment is just one component in building a stronger, healthier community.

Carter will speak at the conference's plenary session on Saturday, April 6, 2019 at the Orion Performing Arts Center, Mt. Ararat Middle School, Topsham, Maine.
