This event is called “speed dating with the Loebs” because it is an opportunity to meet them each individually. This provides a chance to make connections and find areas of common interest that may evolve into collaborative work during the coming year. The 10 Loebs will be stationed at individual cocktail tables where the guests can easily approach and engage them. Additionally, there will be snacks, drinks and lovely piano music by Edna Van Saun.
The Loeb Fellowship cast a wide net for next year’s Fellows and once again has selected practitioners logging extraordinary successes to achieve equity and enhance our built and natural environment. Their work encompasses sustainable agriculture and food security, traditional practices for tribal community development, water rights and coastal resiliency. They are leading pop-up neighborhood improvement demonstrations and studying pop-up political resistance. They are saying No to sprawl and Yes to affordable housing and livable streets. And they include the Fellowship’s first television talk show host!
