Canalscape one component of “Green Phoenix”
[Source: Arizona State University] — On March 10, 2009, ASU President Michael Crow met with US Secretary of Energy Steven Chu to discuss a new initiative called “Green Phoenix.” ASU, in partnership with the City of Phoenix, and other government, education and business entities, has devised a 17-point plan to make Phoenix a national leader in renewable energy, water conservation, carbon neutrality, sustainable technologies, and green jobs.
One component of this comprehensive, multi-faceted plan is a project called “Canalscape” which aims to re-imagine urban planning in metro Phoenix by creating vibrant living corridors along its nearly 200 miles of canal banks.
This podcast features a conversation with Dr. Nan Ellin, associate professor in the School of Public Affairs, and Braden Kay, a graduate student with the ASU School of Sustainability, who are working to advance this project through education and action.
