Green The Ghetto – and how much it won’t cost us

Douglass Residential College’s 2010 “Women in the Era of Globalization” lecture series presents Majora Carter, noted environmental activist and MacArthur award winner. Ms. Carter’s work is devoted to sustainable development and environmental justice. Her holistic vision links green building, livable neighborhoods, and anti-poverty efforts. After linking government, industry, environmental and community groups to develop a park in the Hunt’s Point neighborhood of the Bronx, she started the Sustainable South Bronx organization. She is now head of a consulting firm the Majora Carter Group which works to find innovative solutions to environmental degradation and poverty together. Douglass is pleased to bring Majora Carter’s inspiring vision to Rutgers and the entire New Brunswick community.
