Check out our growing video library for smarter, greener communities
Posted July 2, 2012 in Living Sustainably
NRDC's sustainable communities team has just created a second video channel, on Vimeo.com, to complement our original on YouTube. In each, we are collecting easily accessed video content highlighting various aspects of smarter and greener cities, towns, neighborhoods, and metro regions. Most are videos created by others and curated by us. A few are original to NRDC. The idea is to give folks a place (now, two places) to go to see good work and ideas and, like us, be inspired.
For both, our user name is NRDCcommunities. As of this writing, we have assembled 158 videos on the NRDCcommunities YouTube channel, and 52 on the NRDCcommunities Vimeo channel. When we see one we like that's available to be included, we add it. Check them out and let us know what you think.

From our YouTube channel, here's a fun tour of bicycle accommodations - some public, some homemade, in Portland:
You can subscribe to either channel or both - and, if you have a favorite video on YouTube or Vimeo you'd like us to consider including, let us know!
