Greening Our Community Series: Sustainable Development

March 27, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

When is development green? Is development ever green? These questions are the focus of public debate in Newton. Join us for a program in which Andre Leroux, Executive Director of the Massachusetts Smart Growth Alliance, will present the case for sustainable development, both globally and locally. Green Newton board member, Jim Purdy, will help to set the context as it relates to Newton. The program will address:

  • Current development projects in Newton
  • Why smart growth is needed to move toward a more sustainable future
  • How sustainable development helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate climate change


The program is part of the ongoing Greening Our Community Series and is cosponsored by Green Newton (and the League of Women Voters/Newton).
