Dear friend of Greenbelt Alliance,
|Economist correspondent and author Ryan Avent will speak on stimulating the economy via better placemaking.
In today’s uneasy economic times, both CEOs and policymakers are
searching for ways to maintain that special advantage that will set our
region apart from the world’s competition. What are the proven
solutions local governments can turn to so they can bolster existing businesses and attract new investment?
Greenbelt Alliance has long advocated to address many challenges and preserve what is
special about the Bay Area through better placemaking.
Please join us on April 19 for “Building a
Jobs-Rich Region: A Conversation with Ryan Avent,” a special event about
the Bay Area’s economic outlook. Ryan Avent, economics correspondent
for The Economist and author of The Gated City,
will speak with Carl Guardino, President and CEO of the
Silicon Valley Leadership Group, about the Bay Area’s future and what
the region can do to remain on the cutting-edge.

Program at Stanford University, and the Bill Lane Center for the
American West at Stanford University.
