Media Coverage for a Sustainable Inner-city

The Strathcona Business Improvement Associations, Sustainability 2.0 Expo which was organized by the SBIA, local businesses, including several of the folks behind this blog, was a huge success.  We brought up Majora Carter to be the keynote speaker.  We brought together local green business leaders, we invited the whole community,  City Councillors and sponsors were pleased with the outcome, we even introduced Majora to Vancouver’s Mayor.  This blog and the Green Inner-city Cluster are part of the follow up on the momentum built on April 2nd.  So it was good to see we’re not the only people still motivated to make a positive and green change to Vancouver’s inner-city.

The folks over at Granville Online, including the second greenest person on the planet just wrote a nice follow up piece on the efforts of SBIA to become a green industrial zone.  There is still lots of work to be done, if you’re interested in greening your organization and working towards a greener inner-city, one that includes green businesses and green jobs, join us once again in Strathcona for the Green Inner-city Cluster Kickoff on June 10th.
