2022 API Conference Keynote Speaker: Karen Foster
Place and Policy
This talk will draw on nearly a decade of rural-focused research to explore the idea of an ‘urban bias’ in planning and policy. In line with the conference theme, it will look specifically at some of the ways that ‘inclusion’ can differ across urban, suburban, rural, and small-town communities. It will ultimately argue for the importance of place in inclusive planning and point to some inspiring models of inclusion.
