Communities and the Stimulus Package Communities and the Stimulus Package

Mon, 18 May 2009 20:55:49 -0400

On May 11th, a group of community leaders from across the nation gathered in New York to discuss what they are doing locally to improve their communities with the stimulus money. MIT graduate student researchers Uyen Le and Sarah Nusser presented an extensive flow diagram and spreadsheet breaking down all green-related stimulus package funds. They represented a team of 12 contributing students. Additionally, Nelson Johnson from Beloved Community Center in Greensboro NC, Burt Lauderdale from Kentuckians for the Commonwealth, and Derrick Johnson from Mississippi NAACP presented what they are doing locally, on the ground, in their own communities to take advantage of stimulus money.

The Big Road - Port Au Prince The Big Road - Port Au Prince

Tue, 16 Mar 2010 17:45:09 -0400

Here is one clip of footage from Port Au Prince two months after the earthquake. A small team of MIT alumni, professors, fellows, students, and staff went to Haiti in March 2010 to help formulate a housing reconstruction plan. Here is one clip from our visit. Boulevard Jean-Jacques Dessalines, or La Grand Rue, is the commercial heart of the city. Jean-Jacques Dessalines was a leader of the Haitian Revolution and the first ruler of an independent Haiti under the 1801 constitution. Jean-Jacques Dessalines was Toussaint L'Ouverture's principal lieutenant. After the betrayal and capture of Toussaint Louverture, Dessalines became the leader of the revolution, defeating French troops in 1803. When Haiti became an independent nation in 1804, Dessalines was chosen by a council of generals to assume the office of Governor-General. Soon after, he proclaimed himself Emperor and ruled the country until his assassination in 1806.

dialogue snippet: What is the future of the green jobs industry? dialogue snippet: What is the future of the green jobs industry?

Fri, 02 Oct 2009 12:12:52 -0400

Watch the full panel discussion to see the whole conversation. In the summer of 2009, MIT CoLab deployed student staff to organizations in North Carolina, Mississippi, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Los Angeles, among others, to collaborate with communities interested in using stimulus money in especially innovative ways. The common stimulus dispute CoLab's community partners face looks like this: the City wants to spend its stimulus money on new boilers for City Hall, with a one-time installation done by an established contractor. Community groups, however envision something more like this: (1) a job skills training program for unemployed youth and former felons, including a leadership development component, which trains folks how to weatherize and retrofit buildings, and also how to start a small business. (2) newly trained workers get paid to to the work in their own neighborhoods. (3) With this experience, they could potentially start their own businesses. (4) Meanwhile, their neighborhoods would use energy savings from their now weatherized homes to engage in a collective mortgage reduction program, or as savings towards a community center building.
