'Focus: Sustainability' Launches on The Atlantic Cities

More

As more than 50 percent of the world's population is now living in urban areas, we need a deeper exploration of how urban sprawl puts strain on global centers and how we can tackle the many challenges that come along with it. Our award-winning editorial team is addressing this exact topic in a new, dedicated channel on The Atlantic Cities called "Focus: Sustainability".


This channel features the people, projects, and ideas that are helping to move our cities toward a more sustainable future. Leading experts, such as Richard Florida -- economist, professor, and Atlantic senior editor -- are lending their voices to cover a range of topics, such as sustainable transportation, smart-grid technology, efficient building technologies, green design and infrastructure, and alternative energy solutions. 

"Focus: Sustainability" has been made possible with the support of our exclusive sponsor, Siemens. We thank our long-time partner for enabling us to bring this initiative to life. 

Visit the channel, now live through August 13.
