In May 2015, through the generosity of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, the National Trust convened a group of people at Kykuit, in Pocantico Hills, New York, to talk about the future of preservation. The goal was to hear from people who work with old places but who do not necessarily consider themselves to be professional preservationists. At the end of the meeting we asked attendees "How can the field of historic preservation evolve in the next fifty years to support your work?" Their responses are below and can be summarized into four loose groupings: Livability, Democratization & Inclusion, Sustainability, and Partnerships.
