The Ethics Of Place: Lessons From Green Plans Of Europe

March 23, 2000 -- Tim Beatley, associate professor of urban and environmental planning at the University of Virginia and author of the recently published book, "Green Urbanism: Learning from European Cities," will discuss the sustainable city movement in Europe and its implications for solutions to sprawl in America on Friday, March 31, at 12:30 p.m. in Campbell Hall, Room 153. His talk is titled "The Ethics of Place: Lessons from Green Plans of Europe."

Beatley will discuss cutting-edge policies and programs and innovative planning tools used in the twenty-five European cities he studied for his book. Among them are renewable energy initiatives, transportation alternatives, and ecological building practices. He found that looking at the city as a living organism can help reduce sprawl and at the same time reduce taxes, save money, and improve quality of life.

Beatley’s lecture is the last in a series of lectures on ethics in architecture sponsored by the University of Virginia School of Architecture.
