Green Infrastructure, Resilient Cities: New Challenges, New Solutions
The Stegner Center’s twenty-first annual symposium, “Green Infrastructure, Resilient Cities: New Challenges, New Solutions,” will address new urbanism and how to create cities that are both sustainable and resilient. Topics to be addressed include urban design, green architecture, water usage (including reuse of waste water and storm water), the suburban-urban interface (including regional transportation, food sheds, and air quality), energy usage in cities, and how to plan for climate change to create resilient cities. Throughout the symposium, speakers and talks will focus on how these issues relate to the Wasatch Front. The College of Law’s new LEED Platinum building will be highlighted, as an example of green architecture.
