Bioregional Urbanism: A Collaborative Framework for Scalable Sustainability

April 3 @ 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm

Sarah Howard, Co-Founder and Executive Director of Earthos Institute

“Further research is needed to better understand the linkages across food, water, and energy systems; our response to the resource conundrum must be long-term and integrated across sectors to address systemic risks and root causes.” – From the Global Resource Security Experts’ Workshop, 2009

This talk will explore Bioregional Urbanism, a practice methodology that helps cities and regions become more resilient and self-sufficient and measurably contribute to global sustainability. A team of designers, scientists, policy practitioners, and community partners at Earthos Institute are developing this cross-sector decision-making framework to help people work together to address the resource conundrum while contributing to vibrant places and improved well-being for all. This session introduces the underlying research, theoretical constructs, and practice methods of Bioregional Urbanism, along with preliminary applications in the Boston area and regions around the world.

This event is part of the Lunch and Learn series sponsored by the Environmental Studies department. See the full line-up of spring speakers here.
