Sustainable Urban Environments
Research, Design and Planning for the Next 50 Years

May 22-26, 2019

The Call for Proposals will open this fall. Start planning your submission now!

EDRA 50: Sustainable Urban Environments: Research, Design and Planning for the Next 50 Years, will explore how environments at all scales can be designed to support a more sustainable world – especially in the light of urgent Global Climate Change concerns. Cities provide central examples of resilient and sustainable solutions that address environmental, economic, social and behavioral elements.

EDRA 50 will explore research, design, and planning contributions to the critical mission of sustainability, involving built and natural environments, that address long and short-term responses.

Topics for Sustainable Urban Environments:

  • Cities, Urban Environments and Globalization
  • Green Infrastructure, Natural Resources and Urban Ecology
  • Global Climate Change: Attitudes, Behavior, Design and Advocacy
  • Participatory and Evidence-Based Strategies for Sustainable Design
  • Place-making: Personal, Social and Cultural Meanings of Space
  • Environmental Design and Human Well Being
  • Resilient Community Planning and Design
  • Sustainable Lifestyles and Ecological Behavior
  • Housing Design, Experience and Policy

We encourage submissions in these topic areas which address the conference theme of Sustainable Urban Environments. We recognize, however, that EDRA is home to a broad and diverse range of work and the Conference welcomes submissions from the full range of disciplines, professions and issues that address environmental design research.

Save the date and check back soon for more information on call for proposals, submissions, and conference registration!
