At Every Scale
September 24th 9am-1:30pm September 25th 1pm-6:00pm
The events of 2020 have exposed critical issues of social justice and health equity that are embedded within the built environment. It is clear that our professions face a broad range of challenges for the future. Are planners, architects and landscape architects equipped to make measurable and positive change?
This multi-disciplinary conference seeks to examine how current events have shaped Public Health, Transportation, and Technology, and how the allied professions can aid our communities in moving forward.. We will explore how these components of society are understood at the neighborhood level all the way to the global scale, because now more than ever each discipline must work to address the social and environmental implications for the future at all scales. The conference will engage government officials, practitioners, and researchers in discussions about the relationships between scales and the methods of practice used across our professions.
