Gray to Green Communities: A Call to Action on the Housing and Climate Crises

Dana Bourland

  • Vice President of the Environment Program, JPB Foundation

US cities are facing the joint challenge of the climate crisis and the lack of housing that is affordable and healthy. In her new book, Gray to Green Communities, affordable-housing expert Dana Bourland argues that we need to move away from a gray housing model to a green model that considers the health and well-being of residents, their communities, and the planet.

Before joining the JPB Foundation, Bourland was Vice President of Green Initiatives for Enterprise Community Partners, leading this national organization's award-winning Green Communities program, including the creation of Green Communities Criteria, Green Communities Offset Fund, and Multifamily Retrofit Program.

This Stardust Center event is in partnership with Island Press, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that shines a spotlight on crucial issues and focuses attention on sustainable solutions.

Moderated by Jon Ford, director of strategic initatives for Vitalyst Health Foundation.
