CCRUN Green Infrastructure, Climate, and Cities Seminar Series
More than half of the world’s population now lives in cities. This demographic shift creates a host of new opportunities, but also some new risks, especially given the challenges posed by climatic extremes. This timely seminar series focuses attention on these issues, and what decision makers, researchers, and practitioners are learning about how to address them.
The focus of the CCRUN seminar series is on urban solutions to global problems associated with increasing temperature and sea level rise, precipitation variability, and greenhouse gas emissions. We are interested in the implications of such changes on the complex infrastructure of intensely developed landscapes, and on the health, well-being, and vulnerability of the people who live in them.
All the seminars are free, and held at 4:00 PM on the first Wednesday of every month at Drexel University. Refreshments will be provided. The sessions will be broadcast live via webcast, recorded, and archived on the CCRUN website.
Space is limited, so RSVP is required for:
Please direct all inquires to Dr. Franco Montalto, firstname.lastname@example.org.
