Success in the City

April 21, 2017 | 1:45 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.

Modern cities have long been considered adversaries of environmental health, from urban sprawl to suffocating smog and refuse.  It is thus astonishing that 21st century cities have become epicenters of environmental restoration, stewardship and education.  Sponsored by the Mellon Initiative in Urban Landscape Studies at Dumbarton Oaks.
