The Future of the Suburban City
Thursday, Apr 28, 2016 1:15 PM - 2:15 PM EDT

Places that grew up based on the automobile and the single-family home need to dramatically change and evolve. But suburban cities have some advantages over denser cities in an era of climate change, and many suburban cities are already making strides in increasing their resilience.

On April 28, join the Security and Sustainability Forum and Island Press for a discussion about the promise and challenges of the suburban city. Panelists include Grady Gammage, Senior Sustainability Scholar at Arizona State University’s Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability and author of

The Future of the Suburban City: Lessons from Sustaining Phoenix, and Nico Larco, Associate Professor in the Department of Architecture at the University of Oregon and author of Site Design for Mulitfamily Housing.

Take a fresh look with Grady and Nick at what it means to be sustainable and examine issues facing most suburban cities around water supply, heat, transportation, housing, density, urban form, jobs, economics, and politics.

Regardless of your background and experience, participants will see some new ways to assess and plan urban sustainability.
