Grab a seat. Let's talk about how to improve & strengthen our beloved Chicago. This page is dedicated to serving my group during the Urban Sustainability Apps Competitions: Chicago 2013. Urban sustainability is on the table. Using Chicago data focus groups are going to look at urban factors. Population, climate, travel patterns, transportation, energy consumption/ source, green living, and more. Community activists and app developers will work together to build tools to make our neighborhoods more sustainable, both environmentally and economically. CNT welcomes participants from all corners of the city, whether you’re a local activist working to improve your neighborhood or a code junky looking to make a difference in the community.

Let's jump in with a clear definition of our objective:

"A sustainable city, or eco-city is a city designed with consideration of environmental impact, inhabited by people dedicated to minimization of required inputs of energy, water and food, and waste output of heat, air pollution - CO2, methane, and water pollution. "
