The Next 100 Coalition

Keystone is providing policy insights and facilitation in support of the Next 100 Coalition — a broad-based effort to ensure our public lands are engaging and serving all segments of the American people. The Coalition brings together leaders from faith-based, civil rights, community, and environmental justice groups to establish a more inclusive approach to management of our nation’s parks and public lands over the next 100 years. Keystone is supporting the Coalition’s efforts to work constructively with land management agencies, environmental and nongovernmental organizations, and the public, to include perspectives from an increasingly diverse national constituency in the policies, workforce, and culture of those organizations.

Keystone’s work has helped establish and manage Coalition work groups on policy development and communications; supported Coalition outreach to the U.S. Department of the Interior and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, as well as several federal agencies; and made connections between the Coalition and other environmental organizations.
