Cleveland to build green agenda

Marc Lefkowitz  |  06/10/09 @ 3:33pm

Mayor Frank Jackson wants to empower Cleveland to be a green city on a blue lake, and will host a three-day summit on August 12-14 with a diverse cross-section of area leaders and green advocates to create a sustainable economy roadmap.

"With an increasing emphasis on developing green technologies, minimizing impact on the environment and the need for all people to participate in economic success, the green economy will be one of the important growth sectors of the future. Cleveland's Office of Sustainability, several local organizations and regional companies have set the stage for Cleveland to become a leader in the emerging green economy. Now is the time to take these efforts to the next level."

You can apply to participate, and also, read Cleveland School's "The Future of Green in Cleveland" winning essays here.
