Festival of Ideas for the New City
Sustainable City Mayoral Panel Discussion
with Sergio Fajardo, John Fetterman, Greg Nickels, and Michael Nutter.
Moderated by Kurt Andersen.
Friday, May 6, 2011
The sustainable city is the city with a future. Between greenwashing and scolding, it is easy to be cynical about admonitions to change our resource-consuming habits, but the fact is that our future depends on it--and on making our cities not only environmentally but economically and politically sustainable as well. In this panel at Festival of Ideas 2011, a group of leading Mayors discusses their work on making their cities ready and open for the long-term future.
