AS/COA and YPA Miami present the launch of the Winter 2014 issue of Americas Quarterly entitled “Our Cities, Our Future: Making Cities Healthy, Green, and Sustainable.” With over 80 percent of the population living in cities, the hemisphere is facing the challenges of rapid urbanization, pollution, and climate change.
