Good News from the Gulf Coast
Yesterday, I had the privilege of meeting with dozens of leaders from all over the Gulf Coast who are working on some really innovative clean economy projects. I’m not one to get overly sentimental, but the commitment of these local leaders to rebuilding sustainable and economically diverse communities in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and the Deepwater Horizon oil spill was actually quite inspiring.
These local and regional leaders were in town for the Gulf Coast Sustainable Economies Roundtable at the White House, a series of working meetings aimed at finding ways to replicate their successful projects in other Gulf Coast communities, drive economic development and create jobs.
A few highlights:
