Review for Georgia Conservancy Inc, Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I got involved in The Georgia Conservancy because of its practical, progress-oriented approach to protecting Georgia's unique natural resources, promoting sustainable growth practices and advancing sound environmental policy. Unlike many flame-throwing special interest groups that rely on stoking peoples' fears to attract support, the Conservancy instead leads and achieves results by (i) convening diverse interests to identify common ground, (ii) building on consensus among diverse interests to achieve policy advancements and constructive change on a sustained basis, and (iii) making sure that policy advancements, one enacted, are not rolled back. Making informed judgements that balance science, the political environment and economic considerations, the Conservancy embraces incremental progress over the short-to-intermediate term as a means of achieving broader and more material environmental protections over the long term. In today's era of extremist-led, divisive politics, where "all-or-nothing" approaches increasingly yield "nothing" as opposed to "all," the Conservancy's balanced, measured approach is an exemplary model for achieving solutions to complex, contentious public policy iniatives.
