Complexity of Environmental Legacies
The Environmental Science and Design Symposium, formerly the Land and Water Symposium, is a multidisciplinary forum that promotes the exchange of ideas related to the resiliency of natural and built systems. This year’s theme, “Complexity of Environmental Legacies”, reflects the challenges of developing sustainable systems in landscapes transformed by decades of modification and contamination. Speakers from a wide range of disciplines (fashion, geology, geography, architecture, and ecology) will address topics related to urban, sustainability, restoration, and the integration of design with biological systems.
This year's symposium is being made possible through generous support from the Cleveland Water Alliance (Opening Reception Sponsor), Deborah Gillaspie and Frederick Sturm (Morning Session and Gallery Reception Sponsors), Kent Environmental Council, Cleveland Metroparks, Ohio Space Grant Consortium; and from partners across Kent State University including the Center for Ecology and Natural Resource Sustainability, the Department of Geology, the Division of Research and Sponsored Programs, and the Environmental Science and Design Research Initiative. Sponsorship opportunities are still available.
Registration is free and open to the public. We hope you will support the symposium, attend, submit abstracts for poster presentations, and encourage other students and colleagues to attend!
