In addition to our core portfolio of work, we work to be a platform for our member institutions to come together to be responsive to a rapidly changing environment–From Hurricane Katrina relief efforts, to finding promising approaches to address the realities of the foreclosure crisis in 2007. And, an ambitious research and development agenda has created space for Living Cities staff and staff of our twenty two member institutions to collaboratively explore issues such as the green economy and celebrity engagement in social change efforts.

The Green Economy Working Group was established to provide a forum for our board members and their staff to align and coordinate efforts in the green economy, identify emerging areas of opportunity in the field, and drive an agenda that promotes economic growth in low-income communities. Across the fields of energy efficiency, green stormwater infrastructure, and food, the Working Group supported access to opportunity for low-income people through energy savings, greater quality employment, and healthier communities.
