Funding Sustainable Cities in an Era of Economic Crisis: Free Webinar


Cities are often touted as being more efficient than country living. But how do we continue to offer sustainable urban models in an era of economic crisis and budget cuts? We've already seen young Greeks abandoning economically-troubled Athens for a simpler life in the country. Today the Sustainable Cities Collective is offering a free webinar on funding green cities in the face of reduced Government spending capacity:

Advocates of sustainability know that urban retrofits and infrastructure projects offer opportunities to increase energy efficiency as well as livability, and reduce the environmental impact of our towns and cities. But proctrated economic challenges have left governments at nearly all levels ill-equipped to provide funding for many such projects, both in the U.S. and abroad.

Check it out at Sustainable Cities Collective at 1 PM ET/10 AM PT today, Tuesday 24th May.
