Majora Carter: Growing Green
November 2, 2011$15
Join The Museum of Science when they welcome Majora Carter, eco-entrepreneur and president of Majora Carter Group, to share inspirational lessons of how we can bring out the best in our communities and ourselves—and move forward, together.
Health Hero. Prophet of Local. Eco-Industrial Strategist. Economic Pioneer. Intrepid Boundary Breaker. These all apply to one person—Peabody Award-winning radio broadcaster and MacArthur “genius” fellow Majora Carter.
In 2001, Carter redefined environmental-equality through one of the nation’s first green-collar job training and placement systems, coining the term “green the ghetto.” She began this decade as one of Fast Company magazine’s “100 Most Creative in Business” with her groundbreaking consulting company that offers analysis and advice on climate-adaptation, urban micro-agribusiness, and development strategies for business, government, foundations, universities, and economically under-performing communities.
Her firm specializes in advanced urban agriculture job creation and food distribution systems that transcend the limits of good-nutrition educational efforts by building economic imperatives for all people to do better.
