Gregory Schwartz: Bright Green Future

Do you ever look around and think that if our agricultural and transportation systems could get a little more efficient, we might just be able to slow down the rate of climate change? Well, our guest today has spent a lot of time thinking about that, and what people are calling “tactical urbanism.” This week on Sea Change Radio, we speak to Gregory Schwartz, whose new book is Bright Green Future – How Everyday Heroes are Re-Imagining the Way We Feed, Power and Build Our World. Taped before the pandemic, our conversation highlights urban planning efforts in Dallas, non-profits in Detroit, as well as other movements and innovations that are providing hope in the struggle against climate change. Schwartz also alerts us to a set of newfangled, made-up policy words like “stroads” and “blots” that may be coming soon to a neighborhood near you!
