What determines a region’s economic vitality and what jeopardizes economic competitiveness? How can local governments help maximize job creation?

Greenbelt Alliance has long advocated for place-based solutions to address many challenges and preserve what is special about the Bay Area. 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 with a focus on those place-based solutions that will ensure our region is on the right track to nurture our economic competitiveness and continue to attract new jobs in the future.

Ryan Avent, economics correspondent for The Economist and author of The Gated City, will be in dialogue 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.

This event is co-sponsored by Silicon Valley Leadership Group, Urban Studies Program at Stanford University, and the Bill Lane Center for the American West at Stanford University.
