The Private Side of Public Work is seeking to partner with the American Planning Association at the National Planning Conference 2018 as a media partner, with the ultimate aim of establishing an ongoing mutually beneficial relationship.
We see tremendous potential to augment and amplify the impact of the APA, to fill an existing media gap, and to serve the planning sector. We uncover the many-faceted relationship between the public and private sectors. The media too often portrays this relationship as black and white. Either government is bad or government contracts are bad. We instigate a more nuanced conversation. In the process of instigating this conversation, we spark ideas, innovation, and a new way of seeing the division of labor between the public and private sector.
