Abstract

This chapter explores how cities are moving towards a more sustainable economy. We explore how cities are investing in people (i.e. green jobs and training programs) and how they are investing in places (redevelopment of brownfields and waterfronts) as a way to create jobs and stimulate economic growth. We also look at the ways cities are attracting green businesses, and particularly the clean tech and energy sectors.
