Talking Urban Sustainability with
Mayor Greg Stanton and

Sustainability Series

Greg Stanton

  • Mayor, City of Phoenix

William McDonough

  • McDonough Advisors / William McDonough + Partners Architecture and Community Design / McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry

Join us for an outdoor event at The Ro2 Lot—a temporary pocket park—for a vibrant conversation on urban sustainability and the pressing issue of what should happen to vacant lots and underused public spaces.

Greg Stanton, recently elected Mayor of Phoenix, has committed to transforming Phoenix into the "Silicon Valley of Sustainability."

William McDonough, co-author of Cradle to Cradle, has been a leader in sustainable development since the 1970s. Trained as an architect, McDonough's interests and influence range widely, and he works at scales from the global to the molecular.

Moderated by School of Sustainability alumnus Colin Tetreault, Senior Policy Advisor for Sustainability, Office of the Mayor

Additional Sponsors: Roosevelt Row Community Development Corporation, Urban Initiatives, Continental Shift, Edge Industries
