Summit to Address Green Solutions to Economic Woes

Local and national environmental activists will gather in Pittsburgh tomorrow for the Green Pathways to Prosperity Summit.

The summit is a pre-program of World Environment Day, to be held in Pittsburgh next month.

The meeting will be hosted by the Urban Green Growth Collaborative to showcase ways cities can reduce blight and unemployment through building a green economy.

G-Tech Strategies Director of Green Technology Initiatives Khari Mosley says Pittsburgh can help begin another industrial revolution – this time with the environment in mind.

Mosley says while speakers will talk about challenges to a green economy, the focus of the summit will be discussing green solutions to urban economic problems.

He says the summit aims to reach an audience who wouldn’t normally be concerned with green initiatives – particularly those interested in the economy.

The Green Pathways to Prosperity Summit is free of charge and will run from 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. tomorrow, May 20, at the Pittsburgh Project: 2801 North Charles Street.
