Do we privilege larger cities when we talk about a sustainable, low-carbon future? Are smaller cities excluded from these conversations?

Catherine Tumber, author of Small, Gritty, and Green: The Promise of America’s Smaller Industrial Cities in a Low-Carbon World, argues that smaller industrial cities have an increasingly significant role to play in our low-carbon, relocalized urban futures. Tumber is a journalist, historian, and currently Visiting Scholar at the School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs at Northeastern University. She is a past Research Affiliate at the MIT Department of Urban Studies and Planning/Community Innovators Lab, Managing Editor/Art Director at the Boston Review, and a Managing Editor at the Boston Phoenix. This is the first part of a two-part mini series.
