A Green BuildingIn the latest episode of the UtneCast, a panel of experts looks at what it will take to change the green-building movement into a full-blown green-cities movement. From last June’s Gaining Ground summit on sustainable urban development, several keen observers and practitioners of green building and urban planning have their say, including Paul Hawken, Pamela Mang, Bill Reed and John Knott. 

And don’t forget to check out the feature package on green building in the November/December issue of Utne Reader.

Also this week, Utne.com assistant editor Bennett Gordon reviews the new album Bachata Roja, a compilation of Dominican music from the 60s, 70s, and 80s.

This will be Leif Utne’s last episode as host of the UtneCast. Please stay tuned for future UtneCasts from the editors of Utne Reader.
