Majora Carter Brings Her "Home(town) Security" Message to Pittsburgh
This Thursday, Pittsburgh’s Green Building Alliance & Phipps Conservatory present internationally renowned urban revitalization strategy consultant, real estate developer, and Peabody Award winning broadcaster, Majora Carter.
What are the factors of a dynamic neighborhood that appeal to everyone? Do the costs of supporting those built environment aspects outweigh the benefits? While the Department of Homeland Security looks at threats from abroad, Majora Carter argues for economic-diversity and quality of life as the surest pillars of a secure society. As promoters of Carter’s Home(town) Security approach to sustainable urban redevelopment through our own Urban Strategies work in the Pittsburgh region, evolveEA is a proud cosponsor of this event.
The event will take place at the Carnegie Library Lecture Hall (in the Main Branch of Carnegie Library) in Oakland.
4400 Forbes Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15213
