Introduction and event description

Do you think cities deserve to be more than a collection of concrete slabs? Then this workshop is for you!

Environmental initiatives in urban settings are of increasing importance for preserving quality of life for future generations. This workshop focuses on sustainable development in the city, and how the prioritization of green living can benefit urban economies. While some say that municipal government is not as influential as other jurisdictions, Mr. Miller believes cities are meaningful political entities that are more than mere creatures of the state.

Learn what can be done to promote sustainable living policies with an individual who has been central to making them a success worldwide.
