Brian Higgins is a transplant from the Pacific Northwest with a master’s degree in landscape design. After moving to Greensboro he wasted no time starting Sustainable Greensboro – a clearinghouse for information and a catalyst for advancing sustainability in Greensboro. The progress he has made with Sustainable Greensboro has also provided him other opportunities, specifically a seat on the Downtown Greenway Technical Team. Since the completion of Phase One of the Downtown Greenway, Brian has used the Greenway to connect from his neighborhood, Glenwood, to the places he both works and plays. And, Brian has been a leader in encouraging others to connect using the Downtown Greenway. On February 1st he rallied members of the Glenwood neighborhood to walk to the opening of the International Civil Rights Center and Museum using the Downtown Greenway. Even through the ice storm early in the morning, the Greenway proved to be a safe and comfortable path to connect with the festivities in the center city.
