Live with The 19th

Creating Sustainable Communities

Dec. 8, 2022 at 1 p.m. ET
Presented by

Sustainability is more than a buzzword: It’s a critical framework to ensure that housing, transportation and water use are designed to have low environmental impact while maintaining a high quality of life. To combat the effects of climate change, residents and leaders across the nation are looking for innovative ways to make their communities more sustainable. 

We’re talking with leaders who are taking bold actions, both locally and nationally, to develop equitable and sustainable communities that are more livable and adaptable for the most vulnerable groups. We’ll learn from them about the steps we can take, individually, to make a difference where we live now — and which ideas are scalable for broad impact.
