Urban Conservancy: Research, Education and Advocacy
Helping citizens make New Orleans a better place to live and work
Dana Eness is Executive Director for the Urban Conservancy. Since its beginning in 2001, the non-profit organization has used research, education and advocacy to focus on responsible stewardship of New Orleans’ many, varied and precious assets. These irreplaceable—but renewable—assets include our city’s distinctive landscapes and waterways, our rich historic fabric and our cultural uniqueness. In this interview, Eness discusses the organization’s dedication to educate the public and inform our city leaders about issues and policies that affect us all. The Urban Conservancy also has the vital role of encouraging citizens to get involved with and participate in the process of making New Orleans the place they are proud to call home.
