2012-13 Fireside Conversation Series
"Cities, Economic Development and Sustainability”

In Emerald Cities: Urban Sustainability and Economic Development (Oxford, 2010), Joan Fitzgerald, Interim Dean of the School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs, Northeastern University, argued that the key to urban climate change planning in the U.S. was to connect it to local economic development strategies. She examined opportunities in green building,energy efficiency, renewable energy, transportation and waste management. Almost three years later, the promise of green jobs has been a disappointment. Were the numbers exaggerated? Was our policy wrong? Or does real green growth potential exist? Fitzgerald examines these questions and reports on places and sectors where green economic development is real.
