COVERING GROUND: Lauren Racusin ’07 collaborates with mayors around the world on urban planning and economic development in her role at Bloomberg Associates, a nonprofit that helps city governments improve quality of life for their residents. Recently, she helped the city of Milan, Italy, devise a master plan that calls for more green space to address heat islands and poor air quality. The goal is to add 3 million trees to the city. Racusin, who works on several other projects as well, says this is her favorite because it “exemplifies the unique, nimble nature of my work.”
