Climate Change and Urban Design:
Science, Policy, Education and Best Practice
The Third International C.E.U. Congress
14 – 16 September 2008 – Oslo, Norway
This conference will examine the latest implications in science, policy, education and best practice. What is the latest science telling us? What are the consequences for urban development internationally? What are the practical solutions available to reduce climate gas emissions from urban settlements and transportation? What strategies are available to adapt to changing conditions?
Patricia O’Donnell, principal of Heritage Landscapes, spoke about preserving and sustaining the issues in cultural landscapes during the final lecture of the University of Rhode Island Landscape Architecture Lecture Series last night at the Coastal Institute on the URI Narragansett Bay Campus.
Her main focus of the lecture was a discussion about how “to enhance the quality of the urban life.” She said she tries to focus on how the human heritage shapes the land and how to build from it.
