Giving Voice, Being Seen: Community Agency and Design Action in a Time of Climate Change
Giving Voice, Being Seen: Community Agency and Design Action in a Time of Climate Change
WhenThursday, Apr. 26, 2018, 9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Description

Climate change affects everyone, but it does not impact all communities equally. These differences may be most evident in the built environment and the shared spaces such as parks, streets, schools, homes, which we experience and move through daily. In seeking to inspire more collaborative, inclusive and creative responses to climate change in the built environment, the interdisciplinary PhD in the Built Environment at UW is organizing a one-day symposium around the theme of “Giving Voice, Being Seen: Community Agency and Design Action in a Time of Climate Change.”

RSVP here

This symposium is a space for examining the intersections of climate change, urbanism, and environmental justice, and the ways in which diverse voices contribute to or are excluded from climate change conversations.
