The Conference will be held in Tampa, Florida, October 20-25, 2012. Carter will share her experiences in urban habitat restoration and what it can do for the communities that depend on them as part of her keynote talk: “Restoring Ecosystems, Strengthening Communities – A Firsthand Experience.” She will discuss what she’s learned as an on-the-ground restoration leader and provide food for thought as to how communities and restoration can thrive even in these challenging economic times. Majora Carter hosts the Peabody Award-winning public-radio series: The Promised Land. She has a long list of awards and honorary degrees, including a MacArthur “genius” Fellowship. She founded Sustainable South Bronx in 2001 when few were talking about “sustainability,” and even fewer, in places like The South Bronx. Since 2008, her consulting company, the Majora Carter Group, has exported Climate Adaptation, Urban Micro-AgriBusiness, and Leadership Development strategies for Business, Government, Foundations, Universities, and economically under-performing Communities.
