Environmental Health Seminar: "Housing Affordability in Seattle"
Alan Durning founded Sightline Institute in 1993. He contributed significantly to Sightline’s effort to create a new regional index of progress, the Cascadia Scorecard, and has led many of the organization’s other successes. Durning is author or co-author of more than ten Sightline books including This Place on Earth 2002: Measuring What Matters; This Place on Earth 2001: Guide to a Sustainable Northwest; This Place on Earth: Home and the Practice of Permanence (winner of the Governor’s Writers Award in 1996); The Car
and the City; Unlocking Home: Three Keys to Affordable Communities; and Tax Shift. Alan’s current topics of focus include carbon pricing, housing affordability, and democracy reform. He has also written in recent years about making sustainability legal, parking reform, car- less living, bike friendliness, electric bikes, and climate fairness, as well as affordable housing, which resulted in the 2013 publication of Sightline’s first e-book, Unlocking Home.
