As scientists continue to predict worsening outcomes due to climate change, our cities desperately need to design for a new generation of development and infrastructure with resilience at the forefront. The Guide to Greening Cities, the first book written from the perspective of the municipal leaders who pilot these approaches, has become the guide to advancing green city goals and overcoming challenges, from changes of leadership to fiscal austerity. Join us for a conversation with its author about how cities can take the lead in creating healthy and successful green communities.
