The workshop will be led by Urbanova and senior scientists from Ramboll’s Environment and Health Division covering hyper-local air quality, indoor air quality and the relationship of cross laminated timber (CLT) building materials and health. Additionally, The Center for Active Design, the New York-based leading non-profit using design to foster healthy and engaged communities will discuss civic guidelines to achieve trust, participation and stewardship; Urbanova partner, Gallup will discuss people-centered analytics to create meaningful change; WSU’s Laboratory for Atmospheric Research will discuss local health and air quality research initiatives; and Katerra will discuss views on the present and future of intelligent CLT buildings.
The workshop objective is to extend and further strengthen our local and external network of public, academic and private communities with the shared goal of identifying more strategies to ‘harness data, gain insights and solve urban challenges in new ways.’ It all starts with helping Spokane be a more livable, healthy and sustainable community.
Please join us for a lively conversation! We will engage participants in
imagining what is possible as we ‘think big, start small and go fast’ to develop
a living laboratory to design cities of the future in our University District. The
application of health and environment frameworks in future projects and
businesses applies directly to Urbanova’s objective to improve the economic,
social and environmental equity and resilience in communities.
