On behalf of the World Resources Simulation Center, I would like to invite you to bring your ideas, strategies and solutions to work with teams of experts in a new and unique type of planning dedicated to Energy/Water Sustainability in Southern California.
We invite you to participate in an accelerated design process – a tool that builds consensus, so that sustainable policies, projects and solutions can be implemented more quickly. The World Resources Simulation Center (WRSC) is an immersive visualization environment that connects people who work on sustainability issues with our business leaders and policy-makers.
The WRSC is hosting a collaborative planning session dedicated to: “Energy and Water in Southern California: Moving to Sustainability” September 7- 30, 2010. The session is being coordinated by the Global Energy Network Institute at the New School of Architecture & Design in downtown San Diego. Our co-hosts include San Diego State University Viz Lab, SDSU Department of Geography, and the California Center for Sustainable Energy.
Time will be dedicated each day for learning, presenting and collaborating on solutions and strategies. The multi-week format allows these issues to be examined from the macro to micro perspective. We will begin with the global drivers (Sept. 7-10), national/state context (Sept. 13-18) before focusing on the Southern California region (Sept. 20-25). You will be surrounded in the scientific foundation, images, trend graphs, GIS visualization and simulations. As an outcome, prioritized scenario options for dealing with energy and water sustainability in our region will be developed.
