The Idea
We think that Houstonians can build a better Houston today by thinking about the Houston we may inherit in 2040 and the Houston we want in 2040. Each happy hour will include time for networking and socializing, a topical speaker who will give an informational presentation on Houston urbanism, transportation planning, culture, environment, and more, and a visionary speaker who will give their "My Houston 2040" talk:

- What do you think Houston will be like in 2040?
- What do you want Houston to be like in 2040?
- What do you want us to do to make Houston like you want it to be in 2040?

Please join us at our monthly gathering in the second floor room at Rudyard's Pub for lively discussion on how YOU would envision Houston to be in the year 2040.

Free and open to the public.
Food and drinks available at bar.

David Crossley is the Founder and a Senior Fellow of Houston Tomorrow, a nonprofit dedicated to improving the quality of life for all the people of the Houston region. Crossley focuses on planning for a sustainable Houston region, strategies for smart growth, and connecting vibrant walkable urban places with high quality transit, and conservation of our human species.

Jaime Gonzalez is responsible for developing and implement- ing an annual schedule of activities and outreach programs to augment public access and awareness of the prairie for the Katy Prairie Conservancy. Mr. González’s work also involves expanding collaborative efforts with other organizations and agencies around the issues of conservation and education. He also assists with grassland restoration efforts on several Katy Prairie preserves andat over twenty Prairie Builder Schools and Parks locations throughout the Greater Houston area.

Both speakers have been involved from the original sparks of the idea of bringing together urbanists and conservationists together to collaborate on their shared goals. This idea is now the People and Nature Conference which will take place at the Rice BRC October 20 - 22. Tickets and info available here: http://www.peopleandnatureconference.org/
