Northwestern University is pleased to present the first annual Green City Summer Institute, a three-day program that explores Chicago as one of America’s greenest cities. The City’s Environmental Action Agenda commits it to reducing its use of natural resources, improving the quality of life in Chicago as a whole, and saving taxpayer dollars through wise energy and resource-conserving actions. By building green, improving energy efficiency, promoting alternative fuels, recycling waste, and conserving and improving water quality, Chicago has pledged to lead the nation in the urban environmental movement.
