Ten government officials and researchers from South Korea visited the Bay Area on Friday, November 13, 2015, in a trip organized by ICLEI. The visitors wanted information on the best practices in urban sustainability. The group was hosted by Earth Island Institute’s Executive Director John Knox at EII’s conference room.
Board members and staff from ICLEI described their work. Ed Church, Executive Director of the Institute for Environmental Entrepreneurship, spoke about energy and water use in the built environment. Juan Wei told the group about Asia Society’s Pacific Cities Sustainability Initiative.
