Counting on Quality of Life: An Environment Indicator Report,
published in December 2007, is the product of intensive collaboration
between the Center for Houston’s Future, government agencies, and
other non-profit organizations. The 2007 report covers air quality,
signage, green buildings, litter and graffiti, parks and trails, resource
use, tax delinquent lots, trees, and water quality.

For each of the nine chapters, the 2007 report provides “baseline”
information on how the region is doing in each area. The Center
proposes a new format in 2009 to examine these baseline measures.
In the future, each report will cover three indicators at a time,
allowing for a greater focus on data collection and analysis. Reports
will be published over a three year cycle so that each year a new
report will be released with 1/3 of the nine indicators. The Center         The Indicator Report grew out of a “Learning Journey” from the

                               The Leadership Graduates Now 468 Strong!
      On October 18th, the Center for Houston’s Future recognized the graduating class of the Fall 2008 Business/Civic Leadership Forum
      and the number of graduates is now at 468. The seven “Learning Journey” topics were as follows:
1.   Education Reform: Roots, Research, & Results – The
     thesis was that comprehensive education reform will only
     be achieved through political influence, corporate
     contributions to political legislation that will affect change,
     and uniting individuals and corporations to commit 10% of
     their resources to influencing legislation to support
     education reform.
2.   Education Charter Schools – This team explored charter
     schools within Houston and examined what components
     make a top tier school, how to support a successful charter
     school model, and what best practices can be learned from
     the model and applied to public schools.
3.   Renewable Energy – This group utilized a game show
     format to share with the audience their research on
     “renewables.”
4.   Quality of Health – This group’s presentation focused on
     the drivers of “Quality Health.” Key insights from their
     research included addressing pediatric eating habits and
     bringing health education back to public schools.
5.   Protecting Houston’s Homeland – This learning journey
     team shared with the audience members important
     information about protecting Houston from terrorist threats
     both internationally and domestically. The FBI’s top 4
     areas of focus for Houston are:
          I. Preventing another terrorist attack
         II. Counterintelligence
        III. Cyber-crime
       IV. Criminal activity
     Key insight: Augment the work of law enforcement
     agencies by constructively addressing the root causes that          The Fall 2008 Business/Civic Leadership Forum graduates:

     portion of criminal activity.                                            Chris Bilton                        Albert Gaylor
6.   Civic Leadership – This learning journey team offered a                  Andrew Bland                        Tommy Inglesby
     panel of civic and political leaders to share in a discussion            Read Boles Heather Browne           Jon Iszard

     learning journey we heard how all of us working in our                   Tommy Inglesby
     independent silos of government, nonprofit, or business
     must come together to affect regional cross-sector
     “coopetition.” This group then led us in an exercise that
     demonstrated the power of “coopetition” and how
     intentional we must be, if we are to achieve it.
