Catherine Tumber, author of Small, Gritty, and Green: The Promises of America’s Smaller Industrial Cities in a Low Carbon World (MIT Press, 2012), will discuss how industrial hubs like Buffalo can be at the forefront of the new economy. Based on direct observation, Tumber’s research presents a compelling case that rust belt cities can serve as models for sustainable urban living and are increasingly important geographic sites for ingenuity and innovation in the new economy.
Free and open to the public.
