Building More Sustainable Cities
For more than 20 years, Julia has been supporting teams, advising projects, and writing reports that have helped to lead the way on urban sustainability.
I am proud to have contributed to two journal articles in a special issue of the Journal of Great Lakes Research 36 (2010) on Chicago re climate change impacts and adaptation. One article is titled Preparing for a Changing Climate: The Chicago Climate Action Plan’s Adaptation Strategy. The other is Introduction: Assessing the Effects of Climate Change on Chicago and the Great Lakes.
Last summer, I completed a comprehensive report on the process and experience we had in creating the Chicago Climate Action Plan. Considered by many the most complete urban climate action plan in the U.S., we have endeavored to share as much as possible, to help cities around the country and around the world create a more comprehensive strategy.
I like to use IT and social media in support of my clients and their work, but I have not felt a need to have a big footprint on the web for my business. I do want you to be able to learn about what I do, which is why I created this website.
I will post updates on this page — sporadically — when I start or finish a new project, or in support of an event or other impactful work I’m doing. In the meantime, keep an eye on the updates from my networks, on the right of each page. This news feed represents much of the work being done by people with whom I collaborate closely.
I’m glad you have stopped by my website. Please feel free to take a look around. Leave a message here if you would like to talk about sustainability in Chicago and beyond.
