Event Details

BUILD Inc and PUSH BuffaloThe complex environmental challenges we face today require us to look critically at how we might transform our economies to reduce pollution, use less land, and regrow natural spaces. As a result green jobs are increasingly the centre of economic development conversations. Community economic development (CED) is a strategy that can be used to help ensure that the benefits of a green economy are shared with those that are so often left out of the mainstream economy.

This webinar features two organizations that have taken a CED approach to finding green solutions for affordable housing while also developing local leadership and employment opportunities. Building Urban Industries for Local Development (BUILD) is a social enterprise in Winnipeg providing trades-based training for people with limited formal labour market experience. Work that trainees undertake includes retrofitting homes with insulation and high-efficiency toilets as well as water-and-energy-saving devices. People United for Sustainable Housing (PUSH Buffalo) is a local membership-based community organization fighting to make affordable housing a reality on Buffalo’s West Side. PUSH Buffalo has been active in reclaiming empty homes for redevelopment as low-income housing and in the process is helping to develop community leaders to maintain local control of the redevelopments.
