A unique new journalist's resource guide to the story behind Pittsburgh's dramatic environmental transformation was unveiled at the Society of Environmental Journalists Annual Conference in October.
This guide, called "PittsburghGreenStory.org," is a comprehensive Web-based multimedia tool that provides the context, history, background, interview sources, and graphics needed by reporters and journalists to write about Pittsburgh's dramatic urban and environmental renaissance from "the Smoky City" to "America's Most Livable City."
Developed through a collaboration of the Green Building Alliance and the Pennsylvania Environmental Council, PittsburghGreenStory.org is the only multimedia resource that examines the city's environmental history from both the macro and micro levels. It provides a broad perspective and detailed analysis of the issues that have shaped related policies and debates in this region.
This is a great resource for citizens, educators, students and home schoolers!To learn more about Pennsylvania’s Environmental Heritage, go to DEP’s PA Environmental Heritage webpage. (Courtesy Pittsburgh’s Green Building Alliance)
