What role does access to green space—and the act of creating and caring for such places—play in promoting social health and well-being, especially for those suffering through traumatic events?
Keith Tidball asserts that creating and accessing green spaces confers resilience and recovery in systems disrupted by conflict or disaster. Tidball is the co-editor of Greening in the Red Zone, a volume that provides evidence for this assertion through cases studies from Afghanistan, Soweto, New Orleans, Kenya, Cameroon, Cyprus, and Bosnia-Herzegovina

Tidball is Senior Extension Associate in Cornell University’s Department of Natural Resources, where he serves as Associate Director of the Civic Ecology Lab and Program Leader for the Nature and Human Security Program. He also is State Coordinator for the New York Extension Disaster Education Network. His research focuses on interactions between humans and nature in the context of disasters and war and how these interactions are related to a system`s ability to bounce back after disturbance.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
