August Meeting – The Human Habitat: Building communities for people and planet

Just like every creature, humans need a habitat to survive and thrive. How we build the places that we live, work and relax affects both our health and the health of our natural environment. It’s easy to take our built environment for granted, but in fact we make choices individually and collectively that shape how our own habitat functions and feels. For example, whether and how far we walk, bike, ride, or drive to work and other destinations is profoundly affected by how we build our cities; this in turn affects emissions and how much land we pave. Eliza Harris Juliano will discuss what the science of city planning tells us about how to live better and reduce our environmental impacts.

Eliza Harris Juliano is the Director of Urbanism at Canin Associates and serves on the board of the Congress for the New Urbanism, a national nonprofit that helps communities to build places people love.https://www.cnu.org/eliza-harris-juliano
