Blue collar jobs. Green economy.
Contact producer Lee McQueen to sponsor the Blue.Green.Fusion webcast.
For the Blue.Green.Fusion webcasts, Lee gathers research from a wide variety of sources including interviews, corporate literature, meetings, site visits, Internet searches, newspapers, newsletters, newspapers, and reports. She scripts and storyboards each episode. Then she shoots, edits, uploads to the Internet, summarizes, tags, and distributes the video via social media.
Lee commented on public transportation's relationship to sustainability--internationally, nationally (US), statewide (Iowa), and locally (Des Moines).
Lee discussed recent headlines, building and construction issues in Iowa concerning Walsh (Chicago) and Weitz (Des Moines), the job market and the economy, plus Google's foray into offshore wind energy investments.
Gunnar Olson, Public Information Officer for DART, joined Blue.Green.Fusion to reveal details of the large grant DART received to update the downtown transit hub with amenities that include bike racks, sustainable construction and renewable energy features, plus easier access to customer service assistance. Lee and Gunnar also discussed Chicago and New York's transit systems, a light rail system, Amtrak passenger rail, and Megabus.
