Background: Governor Phil Bredesen, a core team of state agency Commissioner's and other executives, have established a significant legacy of accomplishments spanning two, four-year elected terms. The administration has secured vast acreages of newly protected natural landscapes; recruited more than $3.26 billion in investments for or by clean energy technology industries in Tennessee; advanced sustainable tourism in the state and the region; charted new directions in transportation agency management; and received a "Best In the Nation" award for Tennessee's glorious state parks (among other successes). These activities merit public recognition and scholarly discussion.
The Bredesen Administration's conservation legacy will bring to a close the last decade of a prominent five decade history of Tennessee's conservation and environmental movement. Through an objective review of the accomplishments of the Bredesen Administration and related events and experiences, apolitical lessons may be derived that could inform the incoming gubenatorial administration and Tennessee General Assembly in 2011. It is also anticipated that these discussions will inform the leaders and efforts of the emerging sustainability movement in Tennessee.
