Interview: Brent Fryrear, Director, Partnership for a Green City

This week on Sustainability Now!, your host, Justin Mog, sits down for a chat with Brent Fryrear, a long-time champion of sustainability who wears many hats in Louisville. He has served as the Director of the Partnership for a Green City ( since its founding in 2004. The Partnership is a sustainability collaboration between the four largest public institutions in Louisville: Metro Government, University of Louisville, Jefferson County Public Schools, and Jefferson Community & Technical College. Listen in and learn about what it is like to wrangle so many cats.

We’ll also hear Brent’s thoughts on the new leadership in both Metro Government and the University of Louisville, where Brent chairs the university-wide Sustainability Council’s Planning & Administration Committee. We also discuss Brent’s experience teaching Sustainability courses at UofL, working with his new TA, Robin Frederick (Forward Radio’s former station manager!), and developing a SUST 101 Dual Credit program with JCPS.

As always, our feature is followed by your community action calendar for the week, so get your calendars out and get ready to take action for sustainability NOW!
