And cityLIVE! kicks off the national green jobs conference (first of its kind, to be held in Pittsburgh on March 13–14) with a dialogue sharing the best thinking about the link between economic opportunities and environmental situations.

Given Pittsburgh's history, academic and research institutions, and green building momentum, it's in a great position to take advantage of this emerging field. Keep up the good work!
