Hour One, 7-8 PM: Greener Urban Growth
Downtown Fort Wayne is fast developing, often with an eye toward improving the surrounding environment. But how does the city pull that off - and why do it in the first place? Indiana Public Broadcasting’s Energy & Environment Reporter Nick Janzen explores the trend in Greener Urban Growth.

Hour Two, 8-9 PM: Homelessness in Northeast Indiana
We follow up on our reporting series in the fall about homelessness in Fort Wayne and Northeast Indiana. How does the region handle its homeless situation? What are the services available to the homeless? What does the region need to focus on in the future when it comes to its homeless population?
