Environmental Affairs Symposium - Panel: Fluxes: Ins and Outs of Cities
Date: October 12 2011 3:00pm - 4:30pm Location: Stamm Hall
Cities are centers of trade and production, innovation and growth. They are masses of resources, both physical and abstract, with material flowing in and out. These include people, food, manufactured goods, waste, energy and the myriad material things that move between the permeable boundaries of our cities. The fluxes discussed on this panel will involve complicated flows of people and goods, ranging from the movement of food, waste streams, and recent immigrants. This panel will focus on the flow of things into and out of cities and the ramifications of these exchanges.
