Today on Your Call: How could more cities go ‘green’?
On the next Your Call, we’ll talk about what it takes for a city to be truly environmentally sustainable. In 2007, the city of Greensburg, Kansas was leveled by major tornado. They rebuilt as an entirely ‘green‘ city, even though the Republican mayor, Bob Dixon, had to move beyond the stereotype that sustainability was a Liberal concept. So what can other cities learn from Greensburg? Is your local government finding ways to go ‘green’? Join the conversation on the next Your Call with Holly Kernan and You.
