The next installment of the Managing the Planet Panel Series, sponsored by Colorado State University’s School of Global Environmental Sustainability (SoGES), will look at “Thriving beyond sustainability: How cities are taking planning, green building, and economic development to the next level” on Oct. 9.
The discussion will be held at Avogadro’s Number, 605 S. Mason St., 5-6:30 p.m., and is free and open to the public.
Cities worldwide must cope with an increased need for sustainable urban planning in the face of biodiversity loss, increasing population, and climate change. This panel of experts from CSU and the City of Fort Collins will examine what we are doing to take communities – Fort Collins, Northern Colorado, and worldwide – beyond sustainable and how community members can be engaged in the process.
