No longer the Smoky City, the changing industry of Pittsburgh has led to significant improvements in the region. Rebecca Flora of the Green Building Alliance explains, “As home of the world’s first green convention center, and host to 5,000 people for the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) national Greenbuild conference in 2003, Pittsburgh is recognized as a leader in the global green building movement.” WYEP, the “First Green Station in the Nation”, and the Allegheny Front support a series of green workshops around the city to encourage citizens to venture outdoors and be conscientious of their impact on our environment. Bike PGH is tireless in its efforts to support bicycle advocacy, safety and culture ? cutting down on traffic congestion and pollution.
