The Copenhagen Protocol: the View from Las Vegas – Problems, Possibilities and Shifting Paradigms in Sustainable Urbanism
Dr. Robert Dorgan Lectures on Sustainable Urbanism
The rapidly growing city of Las Vegas, Nevada, with over 2 million residents, 40 million tourists annually, and an acute desert climate in the upper Mohave, provides one of the most compelling design laboratories in the world. This lecture re-examines well-known strategies of sustainable urbanism in practice today, and explores the unique ways in which these strategies are practiced in the Las Vegas valley. Event is free and open to the public.
