– Urban Sustainability through Environmental
Design, is an International Consortia conceived by
Dr. Sergio Porta of the Politecnico di Milano.
The origins of the organisation date to 2003, with a vision to establish an initiative which includes three areas: Network, Research and Education, for the purpose of gathering, updating, co-ordination and dissemination of tools of Sustainable Urban Design, with special emphasis on ‘public space’.
Funding is being sought from the European Social Fund (ESF) to bring together an International network of academic, public and private agencies and NGO’s to foster the exchange of sustainable urban design tools with specific emphasis on its impact on social and professional practice.
Interested parties were brought together in an inaugural conference at the Politecnico di Milano in January 2004. Following the success of this event the consortia has moved to strengthen its internal relationships and a core team has developed comprising of academics, practitioners and researchers, this provides a fertile platform for the future development of the organisation and to develop and promote the original aims.
The fourth International Conference on Aging, Disability and Independence will be held February 20-23, 2008 in St. Petersburg, Florida. Click the following links to download further information:
