Groundwork USA: Bridgeport and Portland

This chapter examines two case studies, again at the sub-national level, in the USA. These case studies are projects driven by the Groundwork organisation, a global-level actor, and both the cases are focused on brownfi eld urban renewal strategies across projects in differing locations. There are common themes across each of these projects, such as the involvement of local communities, physical and social improvement of housing and green space facilities, and an overarching theme of sustainable urban renewal across the housing and education sectors, as well as communal parkland and green space.
