In part 1 of our two-part series examining the inequality of access to our public parks and green spaces, we discussed the isolation that can be felt by members of marginalized communities from their experiences in outdoor spaces. We talked about the Next 100 Coalition forming in 2016 to set a vision of inclusion for the Next 100 years of conservation and stewardship in America. And from that group formed Next 100 Colorado, also committed to an inclusive approach to public lands over the next 100 years but primarily focused on making that vision a reality in Colorado. In part 2, we discuss how Next 100 Colorado is making their vision a reality through action based on three guiding principles: ensuring our public lands: reflect the faces of our country, respect all cultures, and actively engage all people.
