Description

Join the School of Urban Studies for our Annual Lecture Series. Special guest speaker, Dr. Roger Caves, Professor Emeritus of City Planning, School of Public Affairs, San Diego State University presents: 'Community Livability: Learning from Home and the Global Community'

Community Livability has become a part of everyday discourse. We read newspaper articles on the lack of affordable housing, inadequate transportation options, low wages, environmental degradation, increasing crime rates, overcrowded schools, lack of parklands, open space, etc.  Who raises the issue of community livability and how does it get on the public policy agenda? Who is ultimately responsible for improving livability? How do our areas become livable communities and how do we maintain community livability?This presentation seeks to answer these and other questions by looking at various case studies from the United States and throughout the world.  We can definitely learn from other areas and adapt and apply what we learn to our own particular geographies.
