American Cities are Working on Sustainability
Or Something Like It
Living Cities, a collaboration between 21 large philanthropic organizations, private corporations, and the public sector recently released a report, “Green Cities: How Urban Sustainability Efforts Can and Must Drive America’s Climate Change Policies.”
In the opening letter from the CEO, the report is said to “showcase and support the innovative
ways in which cities are creating an equitable green economy.” The report is full of helpful visual information, like a chart that exhibits what working families spend on transportation and housing per year (see page 28), or an educational skyline that gives info on resource use from buildings in the city (page 14).
For a synopsis and some highlights, check out the write up on Greener Buildings. The blog will be back to more entries soon, but I was out sick for a few days, which means major catch up.
