CAUSES TV: Water Management

Washington, DC, might not be the first place that comes to mind when we talk about green jobs, and a green city, but there is in fact a lot going on here and our nation’s capital is becoming a leader in green roofs, green infrastructure, urban agriculture, the local foods movement and other green initiatives.

As Washington, DC’s, public land grant university, the University of the District of Columbia conducts research and provides community outreach programs to expand knowledge about urban agriculture, urban sustainability, healthy eating habits, greener and more livable neighborhoods, right here in our nation’s capital. 

Joining Dr. O'Hara is Dr. Dwane Jones, director, UDC CAUSES Center for Sustainable Development, and Seth Charde, with DC Water, who works to develop and implement the agency's Water’s Green Infrastructure Program under the DC Clean Rivers Project. Together, they discuss green jobs and the growing interest in making our cities greener and more livable.
