Green Week 2012: Cultural Perspectives on Sustainability
From March 26th to March 30th Green Week 2012 will take place on the Brooklyn Campus of the Pratt Institute.
As we celebrate the activities and initiatives taking place on campus we also aim to create a space for a global exchange of sustainability practice.
Understanding that Pratt’s faculty, student, staff and their professional networks represent a diverse array of cultures and disciplines, professors from the schools of Architecture, Liberal Arts & Sciences and Fine Arts will collaboratively convene a panel of practitioners from North and South America, South Africa and Asia.
On March 30th the Cultural Perspectives on Sustainability panel will convene to explore indigenous cultures and their perspectives on equity, the economy and the environment.
Our intention is to begin a global dialogue surrounding environmental policy, science and design as well as issues of social and economic equity as experienced and practiced by diverse cultures.
