Episode 31 Rob Bennett

“Just, resilient and sustainable neighborhoods are imperative for environmental, social and economic health. Yet business, as usual, is a brick and mortar linear machine that doesn’t embrace the totality of urban life,” according to Rob Bennett a recognized leader in the sustainable cities movement.

Our cities have significant economic displacement and marginalization, resulting in health disparities and environmental degradation.

I’m excited for you to meet Rob Bennett in this week’s Regen360 iTunes podcast show. Rob is the Founder and CEO of EcoDistricts. He has more than 20 years of experience shaping municipal sustainable development projects and policy and considers himself a civic entrepreneur. Rob served as the City of Portland’s Executive Director of its Sustainability Institute.

It’s imperative that we not only better understand the relative vibrancy of our neighborhoods, but help to make them prosper on a triple-bottom-line basis. But where do we start? EcoDistricts is providing the blueprint and inspiration.

Please join me in learning about EcoDistricts and their new framework for collaboration and integration of the whole neighborhood in my Regen360 podcast interview with Rob Bennett.
