Are Creative and Green Smart and Clean?

Sustainability Series

Kevin Stolarick

  • Research Director, Martin Prosperity Institute, University of Toronto

Clean, green, creative, and now smart cities have all been separately identified, measured, ranked, and evaluated. Are these titles really just different ways of talking about the same type of city?

During this discussion, Kevin Stolarick will identify and compare creative, green, and smart cities and look for correlations. Which cities are creative but not smart? Green but not creative? For cities that are simultaneously creative, green, and smart, what are the underlying relationships that are driving this result?

Dubbed the “Official Statistician of the Creative Class," Stolarick combines a depth of knowledge with an appreciation of the importance of finding and sharing knowledge with others. These “pearls of wisdom" come from his comprehensive understanding of the Creative Class and the Creative Economy.
