Join the Institute for Sustainable Solutions for a faculty roundtable discussion on disaster resilience and solutions for a changing climate.

When:
Monday, November 20, 2 -3:30 p.m.

Where:
Institute for Sustainable Solutions Data Visualization Center, Market Center Building, room 123

What:
Vivek Shandas, professor of urban studies and planning and research director for the Institute for Sustainable Solutions, will present his research on urban heat islands, then guide faculty participants in small group work to identify possible solutions for urban infrastructure, communities, and ecosystems to become more resilient to major natural disasters and other impacts of climate change. Pending faculty interest, this session could lead to a collaborative grant proposal that would have grant writing and management support from ISS.

Bring a colleague and become part of the solution.
