Digi-Ribbon Cutting for University of Denver Sturm College of Law and 3p Blogging Project

We’re excited to officially launch the University of Denver Sturm College of Law / Rocky Mountain Land Use Institute Blog in partnership with Triple Pundit. Sturm and the Rocky Mountain Land Use Institute serve the public interest as an interdisciplinary, non-partisan forum for land use and environmental issues in the Rocky Mountain West. The Institute is pleased to extend the scope of its work through this new blog, and to promote the Triple Bottom Line.

The Sturm/RMLUI blog will serve as a starting point for important discussion on sustainability and land use issues, initiated by University of Denver law students. As student bloggers report on emerging and novel issues, we encourage readers to participate in a dialogue with them, and within their own communities, in order to further a far-reaching and informed discourse on a smarter, more sustainable future.

The Sturm students have knowledge of, and a commitment to, responsible land and natural resource development. They come from diverse backgrounds comprised of unique mix of research and professional experience, including business, law, real estate, education, journalism, construction, technology, conservation and planning. But they all share one goal: to engage others in finding sustainable solutions to the mounting environmental challenges that will affect theirs and future generations.

Sustainably,

William B. Shutkin, Executive Director of the Rocky Mountain Land Use Institute and Lecturer, Sturm College of Law

Welcome to the University of Denver Sturm College of Law/Rocky Mountain Land Use Institute Blog, a special section of triplepundit.com! Here, University of Denver Sturm College of Law students will report on emerging, novel and contested land use and development issues from a sustainability perspective. We believe the development of the American West, and indeed the entire planet, necessitates a closer and more responsible look at not only how we use natural resources but how we build our communities and economies.We invite you to comment and engage with us over issues of interest to you. And we invite you to suggest topics for us to research and report on from our unique perspective as law students. But most of all, we invite you to take these ideas and share them with your friends and colleagues so we can all be involved in a more informed and forward-thinking discussion about our future.
