Building a Better Neighborhood

Eco-entrepreneur Majora Carter started by transforming a neighborhood waste dump into a community-boosting waterfront park. Now she's transforming the world by sharing the vision of environment-centered urban renewal far and wide.

Carter recently appeared at Ted Mann Concert Hall as the inaugural speaker for the Institute on the Environment's Momentum 2011 event series. Watch the full 40-minute video of her talk, "You Don't Have to Move Out of Your Neighborhood to Live in a Better One," below, or take a 3-minute sneak peek.
