Learn about and help illustrate possible design-based solutions to human displacements due to future environmental stressors
There will be environmental forces that push people out of their homelands, such as droughts, hurricanes, and/or sea level rise. As a result, it is likely that there will need to be changes in how we design cities.
At least three aspects of future migration that need to be addressed include:
The aim of this workshop is to highlight some design-based solutions to future environmentally-induced migrations, both within and across geopolitical borders, and to get the audience to illustrate their own design-based solutions.
