Designing A Green New Deal
SEPT 13, 2019 | IRVINE AUDITORIUM

A Green New Deal would have massive implications for the built environment, yet these have received scant attention in public debate so far. Join (SC)², the McHarg Center for Urbanism + Ecology, and our other partners for a major public event this fall, Designing a Green Deal.

 

Public Workshop: The Future of Global Green Investment, or Democratizing the Infrastructures of a Global Green New Deal
April, 2020 | PERRY WORLD HOUSE

How have climate-linked investments performed over the past decade? What are the emerging trends in climate-linked infrastructure investment? What would a more democratic program—in terms of political process, in terms of economically and socially (un)just results— look like in practice?

Further details TBA.
