Sustainability in Vienna: World’s Most Livable City
C3’s August 22 Breakfast Dialogue Explores Vienna’s Sustainability
(SAN DIEGO) August 8, 2013 – Vienna, long known for its beauty, is also noted for being one of the world’s most sustainable cities. On Thursday, August 22, at
7 a.m., the Citizen’s Coordinate for Century 3’s (C3) Breakfast Dialogue will welcome special guest Manuel Ziegler, a visiting scholar at the Global Energy Network Institute (GENI) and World Resources Sim Center, to discuss the many progressive public policies and outcomes that make Vienna one of the world’s most livable cities.
Ziegler is an expert in the field of renewable energies and energy efficiency; he will discuss topics related to urban design, transportation, public spaces, energy generation, water conservation and more. He’ll reveal Vienna’s “best practices” for which it was ranked No. 1 in the Mercer 2012 Quality of Living Survey. The honor identifies the cities with the best infrastructure based on electricity supply, water availability, telephone and mail services, public transportation, traffic congestion and more.
A panel of local experts, including Elyse Lowe, (Move San Diego), Scott Anders (USD Energy Policy Initiatives Center) and Bill Anderson (AECOM and President of American Planning Association) will also participate and share recommendations for San Diego.
The event will take place at Downtown's Wyndham Hotel, 1355 N. Harbor Drive and is open to the public. Doors open at 7 a.m.; program starts at 7:30 a.m.
