Join us next week for our final fall ’22 Faculty Seminar, “The Urbasphere: How Humans, Infrastructure and Nature Shape the Emerging Environment of Cities,” presented by Elie Bou-Zeid, professor of civil and environmental engineering and associated faculty in HMEI, at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 6.
In the past 50 years, the global population living in cities increased from 35% to 55%, and may be nearly 70% by 2050. Urban population density and its associated infrastructure and resource needs create an environment unlike any other on Earth. Understanding and managing the “urbasphere” has never been more urgent as cities emerge as the central stage for confronting global challenges related to climate, population, resources and equity, among others.
This seminar is free and open to the public with registration. Lunch will be available in the Guyot Atrium at noon. All attendees can register here in advance to attend this event via Zoom livestream.
