In 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 <a href=”http://www.gaininggroundsummit.com/”>Gaining Ground</a> 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. </p>
<p>And don’t forget to check out the <a href=”https://www.utne.com/community/green-building-for-the-rest-of-us.aspx”>feature package on green building</a> in the November/December issue of Utne Reader.</p>
<p>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.</p>
<p>This will be Leif Utne’s last episode as host of the UtneCast. Please stay tuned for future UtneCasts from the editors of <i>Utne Reader</i>.</p>
