LSC Green Economy Action Team

Vision

To define, support and take collaborative action to improve Louisville’s sustainable green economy. Our team’s mission is to bring together the Louisville Metro’s Office of Sustainability, the University of Louisville and the regions leaders to develop sustainable economic actions. We understand that collaborating to promote a more environmentally sustainable region is engaging work. Our actions will improve, protect and enhance our local green economy in areas such as: education, workforce development; environment; energy diversity and efficiency; land, air and water protection; materials recovery; transportation, and the built environment. We invite participation.

Our definition of Sustainability:

Drive success and connect mutually beneficial efforts around building and upholding a Green Economy in Louisville without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

Videos

Green For All’s video: “What the (bleep) is the Green Economy?”

The group ‘Green For All’ has posted this incredible 12-minute educational video on their website that introduces the different ways in which we can create green cities which create jobs and make our communities healthier.

It quickly and simply illustrates the vital connection between sustainability and economic development. It highlights the unique effects inner city communities experience when environmental justice is not a priority and it uses hip-hop music to illustrate the special opportunities that exist for change. We give this video 5-Stars!
