Bruce Goldstein is Associate Professor of Ecological Planning at the University of Colorado, in Denver and Boulder. He examines how planners, activists, public agency managers and other stakeholders can develop collaborative responses to social-ecological challenges, such as rapid growth in the wildlands-urban interface, biodiversity loss and climate change.
Bruce has just concluded a 5-year study of the U.S. Fire Learning Network. This novel multi-scalar collaborative approach to restoring disrupted fire regimes across multi-jurisdictional landscapes was organized by the U.S. Forest Service and The Nature Conservancy, who sponsored the research. Bruce is also putting the finishing touches on an edited volume called “Collaborative Resilience: Moving Through Crisis to Opportunity”, to be published by MIT Press in October 2011.
