Ten journalists from Korea, China, Finland and France joined the FPC to examine the role of stimulus funding in supporting green jobs in Philadelphia.
Journalists met with managers from the Schuylkill River Development Corporation, a non profit organization devoted to restoring the historic Schuylkill River and promoting recreational and business developments along the riverfront. The tour also included a visit to the Philadelphia Flower Show, the revenues of which the Philadelphia Horticultural Society uses to fund green projects throughout the city. Representatives from the Philadelphia mayor’s office also met with the group to discuss the city’s green initiatives.
