Miami round table to shine light on sustainable infrastructure

August 20, 2018 by  

A key aspect of urban planning is to include resilient infrastructure, and a Miami event will explore this piece of creating a sustainable city.

The round table discussion, which has been dubbed “Naturing the City: Toward Sustainable Communities and Resilient Infrastructure”, will investigate some of the latest trends in urban planning that include sustainability as their foundation. The organizers remarked that this has become increasingly important due to issues such as climate change and rising sea levels.

A variety of practitioners, experts and stakeholders will be included on the panel, and they will be coming from the local area and other communities as well. The participants will share ideas and best practices, discuss their own experiences and insights and offer their opinion about ways sustainability can be involved in any community’s plans for the future. It will be moderated by Florida International University School of Architecture’s Dr. Marilys Nepomechie.

The Museum of Art and Design at Miami Dade College will serve as the location for this round table, and it will run for approximately two hours. Poster printing techniques can be used to craft a variety of materials that promote an event like this to the community.

September 13th has been chosen to be the date for this event that will focus on urban sustainability. It is scheduled to begin at 7:00 pm.
