Green in Action Producer and Marketing and Communications Specialist Klara Kaufman says goodbye and reflects on nearly three years working at Urban Habitat Initiatives.

Rehabilitating older housing to be more energy and water efficient, healthy, comfortable, and resilient is a key approach as we face this crisis.
