Mayor Ravenstahl to address Brown University symposium on sustainability

Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl will deliver the keynote address Friday at a Brown University symposium on urban sustainability.

Mr. Ravenstahl will tell a familiar story--Pittsburgh's difficult transition from a steel town to a city with an economy based on education, health care and technology.

"Pittsburgh is a city that was brought back from the dead and reborn into a thriving metropolis," the Providence, R.I., university said in announcing Mr. Ravenstahl's participation.
