Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is known for many things, rich family traditions; excellence in education; community of hard working people; championship sport teams among them. Today, we can add its leadership in creating a city that values sustainability, environment protection, thriving economy and social justice. Mayor William Peduto’s administration, cites sustainability as a guiding principle and Grant Ervin is leading that principle into action on a daily basis. In 2015, the City of Pittsburgh, joined by 100 Resilient Cities – pioneered by The Rockefeller Foundation (100RC), to kick off the process of developing a comprehensive resilience strategy that will enable the cities involved to better survive, adapt, and grow no matter what kinds of chronic stresses and acute shocks it experiences. Join us to learn how Pittsburgh is creating opportunity for resiliency and demonstrating for the world how to put your values into action. This show made possible due to the generous support of The Fairfax Companies.
