What is Regionalism?

Regionalism addresses issues which cross boundaries of jurisdiction, sector, and discipline to address complex regional issues such as sprawl, equity, education, and economic development. Regional stewards are leaders who are committed to the long-term well-being of places. They see the connection between economic, environmental, and social concerns and they know how to “connect the dots” to create opportunities for their regions. Regional stewards combine 360 degree vision with the ability to mobilize diverse coalitions for action.
