New dean eager to improve, lead architecture college

When Jan Cervelli takes over as dean of the College of Architecture and Landscape Architecture this summer, she plans to enhance the school’s reputation as a leader in sustainable design.

She will also reunite with an old sweetheart.

“I’ve known the reputation of the school for a long time, but I’ve also wanted to live in the Southwest – it’s a place that’s captured my imagination for a long time,” Cervelli said. “All landscape architects, at some point in their life, want to live in the Southwest.”

Cervelli, once approved by the Arizona Board of Regents, will succeed Charles Albanese, whose UA career spans parts of five decades.

LI – Change Change – Leeds May 23

In partnership with Natural England, these conferences are designed to develop further thinking on the crucial role that landscape architects can play in mitigating and adapting to climate change.

In addition to plenary sessions covering the Climate Change Bill, the Landscape Institute’s Climate Change Policy (due for completion this spring) and local case studies outlining the success of landscape-scale approaches to adaptation, there will be a series of workshops for delegates to choose from that relate climate change to the four other policy themes that the Institute will be focusing on in 2008/09:

* Housing
* Green infrastructure
* Community engagement
* Healthy living in the landscape.

World Urban Forum, 03 – 07 November 2008, Nanjing, China

The Fourth session of the World Urban Forum (WUF4) will be hosted by the Government of China and will be held in the ancient city of Nanjing from 03-07 November 2008.

The World Urban Forum was established by the United Nations to examine one of the most pressing issues facing the world today: rapid urbanization and its impact on communities, cities, economies and policies. It is projected that in the next fifty years, two-thirds of humanity will be living in towns and cities. A major challenge is to minimize burgeoning poverty in cities, improve the urban poor’s access to basic facilities such as shelter, clean water and sanitation and achieve environment-friendly, sustainable urban growth and development.
