How do urban design and culture generate changes in the city? How can citizens be more involved in designing urban environments? The design and shape of our cities has been evolving. This café will approach sustainable cities through the lenses of design and community engagement. It will focus on the influence of new approaches to living and planning sustainably for urban regions.

A February Science Café event sponsored by ASU's Center for Nanotechnology in Society, ASU's Project Humanities, and the Arizona Science Center. Science Cafés are free, informal discussions that bring together members of the community and university faculty to discuss how science and technology can change the future.
