The Environmental Design Research Association (EDRA) invites practitioners, researchers, and educators to submit their proposals and join our 51st annual conference to collectively rethink how socially embedded, inclusive, and collaborative environmental design may serve as a foundation for transforming society and address the major challenges the world is facing. 


We invite contributions from practitioners, researchers, and educators to share their transdisciplinary experiences and approaches in addressing EDRA’s critical mission of sustainability, resilience, and social justice. We seek evidence of projects exploring how design and research at all scales can move communities beyond status-quo toward more sustainable and resilient models with adaptive and transformative capacities.


The scope encompasses built and natural environments, historical and cultural assets, technology and communication tools, pedagogy and policy decisions, long and short-term responses to the call for a more sustainable, equitable and resilient world for all people, regardless of age, gender, race, ethnicity, and abilities.


EDRA 51 provides the space to brainstorm how environmental design research collaborates with academia, not-for-profit organizations, public sectors, and private sectors to lead the charge in transforming people’s relationships with each other, their communities, and their environments toward net positive futures.


We encourage you to join us as we debate, discuss, reflect, and transform our capacity to impact social, environmental, and economic challenges around the world.
