Future Cities, Future Citizens

Future Cities, Future Citizens was a seminar in Shanghai last week. Organized by the Stockholm Resilience Centre (SRC), the seminar gathered researchers and students from several countries who presented their urban environmental projects. I collaborated with SRC through the Civic Ecology Lab at Cornell University last summer. I worked with students and an educator at Rocking the Boat in the Bronx, New York City, to describe the impact of their oyster reef restoration project on ecosystem services. We have submitted our data to the Urban Planet Atlas, and then students prepared and conducted a presentation at the seminar in Shanghai.

The Bronx students met with students from Sweden, Kenya, China and India, and shared their environmental restoration and monitoring projects.
