With mounting evidence of the impact of human activity on the global climate, the built environment is increasingly understood as a critical site for applied and conceptual research in questions of energy and ecology. In light of the increasing imperative to act on mitigating the causes and effects of climate change—and to devise new pathways for research and investigation—Harvard’s Center for Green Buildings and Cities (CGBC) and the Harvard Graduate School of Design are pleased to present, “Designing Sustainable Solutions for a Better Built Environment.” The event will take place on Earth Day, Monday, April 22 from 12 PM – 2:15 PM in Piper Auditorium, Gund Hall and virtually. This event is open to Harvard affiliates only. This event features a keynote address by Harvard’s Vice Provost for Climate and Sustainability, James Stock, followed by short presentations by CGBC affiliated faculty from the GSD, whose research ranges from oases to affordable, sustainable accessory dwelling units. A five-minute Q&A session will follow each presentation.
