Rebuilding a Sustainable Haiti: Symposium

Rebuilding a Sustainable Haiti: Symposium

The Institute for Urban Design will host Rebuilding a Sustainable Haiti, a public symposium on planning strategies that can lead to a more socially, environmentally, and economically sustainable future in Haiti.

The scope of the destruction that followed the January 12th earthquake in Haiti was so great that the rebuilding process must seek to transform the country’s built environment, not just replace it. The country’s long-term welfare depends on a new and comprehensive approach to planning for the future. The event will identify specific ways in which New York City’s planning and design community can work within the framework established by the Haitian government to encourage a truly integrated planning process for the reconstruction.

The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held on June 4th, 2010, in the Rose Auditorium at the Cooper Union, from 1:00pm to 6:00pm. For more information, visit the event’s official website.
