Sustainable Cities and Equitable Development: Discussion with Author Karen Chapple

Karen Chapple will discuss her book, Planning Sustainable Cities and Regions: Towards More Equitable Development, at the Environmental Design Library.

Chapple’s book explains how blending the “three Es” of sustainability–environment, economy, and equity, can show us the most just path moving forward for cities and regions across the globe.

This thought-provoking book provides a framework to deal with the new inequities created by the movement for more livable – and expensive – cities, so that our best plans for sustainability promote more equitable development as well.

When: Tuesday, September 15, 2015,   7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Where: Environmental Design Library Atrium, 210 Wurster Hall
