Perspectives on Science & History Series
Featured Speaker: Sarah L. Coffin, Ph.D., AICP, Associate Professor, Center for Sustainability, Saint Louis University
In many US cities efforts at stimulating green economic development strategies are yielding promising results. But in historically distressed communities, extreme economic distress and environmental injustice conditions bring additional challenges to any sort of capacity building. Saint Louis University urban planning professor, Sarah Coffin, explores how urban planning and policy researchers uncover the barriers to green economic development and identify the missing community capacity elements that can help promote green jobs and green justice.
