Fluvial Metropolis Workshop – Part 1

 

The Fluvial Metropolis Workshop is the first in a series of activities to be organized as part of the University of São Paulo/ Princeton University Strategic Partnership for Teaching and Research Collaboration. Topics of discussion will include basic issues pertaining to megacities and water infrastructure, as well as the main objectives of the joint research initiative. The Fluvial Metropolis Workshop will be a significant step towards the realization of the larger aim of the USP/PU research team: to identify sustainable solutions that are sensitive to issues like water resource management, energy efficiency, technology innovation, human and environmental health, as well as equity and fairness, poverty and job creation, and more intangible notions of belonging— of cities as homes.
