APA is a sponsor of the “Mitigating Disaster through Design and Construction Conference.” Join the Honorable Earl Blumenauer (3rd District of Oregon), Jim Schwab, AICP, Manager of APA’s Hazards Planning Research Center, and others in an important dialogue on critical issues in hazards mitigation.
Tuesday, February 8, 2011 • 5:00 p.m.
Join us for the inaugural Tuesdays at APA–DC at APA's Washington, D.C., office.
The featured speaker is APA President Bruce Knight, FAICP, who will discuss APA's Sustaining Places Initiative and its efforts to reexamine the comprehensive plan with a focus on sustainability.
As Knight said in his remarks during the United Nations Fifth World Urban Forum last March in Rio de Janeiro, "Sustaining Places will examine both how places can be sustained and how places themselves sustain life and civilizations. Planning's comprehensive focus is not limited to a building or a site but encompasses all scales and all forms of organization of human settlements, from rural areas and small town to cities and metropolitan regions. ... Planners are uniquely qualified to be global leaders in integrating these two concepts of sustainability and places. Ours is the place-making profession and the places that we make must have lasting value for all."
