Thursday, February 5, 2014 – 5:30 p.m.
Free to attend – RSVP required.
The next Biophilia: Pittsburgh meeting will be held on Feb. 5, 2015 and feature Dr. Molly Mehling, assistant professor of ecology and sustainability at Chatham University’s Falk School of Sustainability.
Dr. Mehling will share an ecologist’s view of Pittsburgh’s green infrastructure, expanding upon the principles of biophilia to unpack key differences between biological and ecological systems. Contemporary examples from ecological science will leave the audience with new perspectives on the richness, diversity and networks in communities that can encourage and evaluate citywide efforts to improve stormwater management, remold our urban landscapes, reduce our exposure to contaminants, and connect Pittsburgh’s residents with our nonhuman neighbors. With current and suggested options, Mehling will illustrate pathways for rebuilding our own eco-city by gradually nudging our urban habitat to become more livable for all.
