Add to Calendar   03/15/2017 12:00 PM 03/15/2017 01:00 PM America/New_York Ninth Annual Hope for the City – “Re-Greening Cleveland”

In the late 1800s Cleveland was known as “The Forest City” because of the wealth of trees that characterized the city. Not anymore. “Pittsburgh 40 – Cleveland 19” sounds like another loss to the Steelers, but it’s the comparison of percent tree canopy in each city. That’s right: Pittsburgh has more than twice the tree cover as Cleveland. But what does this have to do with the “livability” of a city? That’s the question that this year’s Hope for the City will address.   The series of lunchtime talks is presented in March on Wednesday’s from noon until 12:50 and is open to the public and supported by donations.   For more information and to make reservations go to http://www.oldstonechurch.org/programs/hope-for-the-city-2017

 

The focus of Hope for the City is to address issues related to making the contemporary urban environment a livable place and falls in line with contemporary issues where people are moving back to urban centers and want to live near their workplace in a safe and enjoyable urban environment, where they can walk or bike to work and have many recreational opportunities close at hand.  It is intended for all who are interested in the issues related to Cleveland’s urban vitalization.  Scheduling the talks during lunchtime encourages city and county workers from nearby City Hall to attend.

 

Speakers will be:

 

                  8 March              Why City Trees Are Essential to the Well-being of Ohio Residents

Dr. David Nowak, Senior Scientist, US Forest Service

 

                15 March             Rites of Way: the Politics and Poetics of Public Space
