The EPiC Think


Fall Semester 2019

Do you want to be EPIC? Come join the Center for Ecological Planning and Design (CEPD) for a monthly discussion group on all things related to Ecological Planning in Cities (EPIC). The CEPD is a campus-wide interdisciplinary center affiliated with the Global Change and Sustainability Center and the College of Architecture + Planning that aims to provide a hub for thinking and research on the built environment and communities. Meetings will be based on the themes of nature in cities, cities as complex adaptive systems, and the processes of transdisciplinary knowledge and community engagement. Frequent guest speakers and field trips will help us better understand the complexities of human settlements through diverse lenses provided by the sciences, social sciences, engineering, design fields, and humanities. All students and faculty are invited to attend.
