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.

Presented in conjunction with the Missouri History Museum exhibition, Streets of St. Louis, on display at the Museum through July 13, 2014.

Registration not required. FREE and OPEN to ALL. Middle and high school students welcome. Parking free in Museum lots or in Forest Park.
