When: Noon, Wednesday, November 6, 2013.
Where: The University of Texas at Austin, Perry-Castañeda Library, Room 2.500 (map).
Background: School of Architecture faculty Dr. Robert Young discusses his research into sustainable growth in metropolitan areas, and how his previous efforts at the University of Oregon might translate to similar endeavors at The University of Texas at Austin.
Young co-founded the University of Oregon’s Sustainable Cities Initiative, which has been described by the New York Times as “perhaps the most comprehensive effort by a U.S. university to infuse sustainability into its curricula and community outreach.”
Young’s research centers on the planning, governance and financing of metropolitan green infrastructure and on economic development initiatives for sustainable cities and regions.
Free Pizza (while it lasts) generously provided by program supporter Austin’s Pizza.
Research + Pizza is a lunchtime lecture series featuring research presentations by faculty from across the university.
