Sustainable communities interdisciplinary lecture

IMPORTANT NOTE: This event has been CANCELED.

The College of Design is co-sponsoring an interdisciplinary lecture featuring Joachim Eble of Joachim Eble-Architektur in Tubingen, Germany. Considered the "grandfather of green building" in Germany, Eble's experience includes projects throughout Europe and Asia. The event will open with an introduction by Carla Carlson, assistant vice president for Statewide Strategic Resource Development, including highlights of the vision for a sustainable University-founded community at UMore Park.

Following Eble's lecture, a reactor panel consisting of Dean Tom Fisher (Architecture); Mary Jo Kreitzer, director of the Center for Spirituality and Healing; and Jonathan Foley, director of the Institute on the Environment, will share their expertise and perspectives on issues around economic, environmental, and social sustainability. The event will close with a light reception and opportunity to visit with Joachim Eble and colleagues in the Humphrey Center Atrium.
