Wellsprings Eternal: Imagination and Innovation for Oil and Water

The challenges we face ahead in managing oil and water resources can be daunting.

What are the imaginative and creative solutions being developed? Can technology and design really solve the problems we face or will we need to consider much more significant changes and sacrifices at the individual, community, and global level?

Henry Henderson, the Midwest Program Director for the Natural Resources Defense Council, moderates this discussion between Scott Bernstein, the President and Co-founder of the Center for Neighborhood Technology, and Greg Watson,a Senior Advisor for Clean Energy Technology with the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy & Environmental Affairs and Vice President for Sustainable Development with the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative.

Participants also had the opportunity to learn about Chicago's award-winning Green Alley Program on a tour of the Couch Place green alley with Janet Attarian, Director for the Chicago Department of Transportation Streetscape and Sustainable Design Program.
