The Land and People Lab
The Land and People Lab is TPL’s “think and do” tank that advances TPL’s work through the power of evidence. From geospatial science to ecology, from economics to epidemiology, from social science to urban planning — we collect and analyze data, generate evidence, and get that evidence where it needs to go to influence policy and practice — all with the aim of advancing TPL’s strategic commitments to health, equity, climate action, and community.
Parks and green spaces are our common ground. In a time when the United States—and, indeed, much of the world—feels increasingly polarized across political, racial, ethnic and socioeconomic lines, parks offer a much needed space for unification.
