On the Edge: Urban Sustainability Lecture Series

Baltimore City Office of Sustainability
Science and Decision-Making for Sustainability
The global human population may reach 10 billion by 2050, making significant demands on natural resources that result in rapid, extensive and pervasive changes in Earth systems. An understanding of the ecologic processes that sustain life on our planet is central to maintaining the health and well-being of human societies. The consensus is clear: Solutions will emerge only from the integration of natural, computational, and social sciences. What is less clear is for whom the solutions will be derived. Who will benefit?
