Carissa Schively Slotterback co-organizes forum that includes speakers from the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs, the Center for Sustainable Building Research, and the Institute on the Environment.
The goal of the forum was to strengthen and expand linkages among the practitioners and academics involved in urban sustainability and urban ecosystems in the Twin Cities and develop a framework for "translational research"--research that would connect the sustainability goals of Minnesota's urban communities with research and outreach at the University of Minnesota. Forum co-organizers were Lawrence A. Baker, research professor in the Department of Bioproducts & Biosystems Engineering, and Carissa Schively Slotterback, associate professor in the Humphrey School of Public Affairs. The event was funded by the McKnight Foundation, the National Science Foundation, CTS, and the University's Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA).
