Designing Cities for People -- Plan B summer series

Lester BrownWe invite you to join us for a summer evening seminar series presented by the World Resources SimCenter.

Based on the acclaimed book by Lester Brown of the Earth Policy Institute, you will be immersed in the trends, projections and solutions of our most challenging issues.

Our interns and experts will present their findings in our large format 12 screen surround facility. You will literally "see" each issue to better understand the interconnected relationships from one week to the next. We invite you to bring your expertise and add your content during the Q & A . . . as we all learn faster together.
