August 11th, 2010, 12:07 pm
In a time of limited public resources, what are the new innovations and financing models that can help build resilient, livable cities and new “low-carbon” economies that are both sustainable and prosperous? Drawing from the Rockefeller Foundation’s global and local urban initiatives, President Judith Rodin will deliver a keynote address on new strategies and approaches to plan for climate change, promote “green” jobs, invest in affordable transportation and housing, and strengthen social capital and inclusion in cities. President Rodin will also highlight creative financing models that leverage public-private funding pools and partnerships to support innovations that can drive prosperity, growth and new cutting-edge opportunities.
