About CoLab Radio

Snob in Cambridge Update_Final

CoLab Radio is a city and regional planning publication where people who are doing the daily work of improving communities can share their stories, document their projects, and express their ideas. CoLab Radio’s mission is to encourage the open sharing of ideas that serve a better future for all communities.

While MIT Community Innovators Lab (CoLab) founded this blog site in January of 2009, CoLab does not endorse every idea and project featured on CoLab Radio. Rather, CoLab endorses unfettered sharing of ideas, stories, and perspectives related to all aspects of city and regional planning.
