CNU 20 – Too Much Water or Too Little? Using the Landscape to Advance Regional Sustainability Without Destroying Urbanism: A Florida Transect
This session will discuss the practical use of landscape techniques to advance regional sustainability in Florida and whether these techniques can be utilized without undermining urbanism. We will also discuss the landscape consequences of reasonably anticipated sea-level rise. Will the Keys disappear by 2015 or will salt-water intrusion transform the coastal life? For purposes of this session, “landscape” is broadly used to include the site, storm-water management, urban agriculture, green roofs and walls, streams, right-of-ways, parks and green infrastructure.
