How is it already the middle of July? Here is what we have next week! Enjoy your weekend.
MONDAY: Our Interconnected Environment
We know how interconnected our world is, especially our environment. Things that we do in the U.S. can affect climates on the other side of the world and emissions in China can affect us here. So how do we get the whole world on the same page? On the next Where We Live we’ll talk about global environmental treaties and negotiations. What goes into the big treaties that try to fix big problems and what can we learn from these negotiations?
Popup storefronts are popping up all over. Here’s the idea: You take one empty retail space…offer it up for free…a new business comes in to re-energize a commercial strip, test out new ideas, and hopefully turn it into a sustainable business. Its been working in California, the UK and New Haven. Can it work in your town?
