As part of an intensive, one-week collaborative workshop hosted by MSU's School of Planning Design and Construction (SPDC), faculty and students from across campus are invited to attend guest lectures by local experts in the fields of planning, community organizing, and real estate development to learn about the intersection between land use planning, social equity, and environmental issues in East Lansing. The workshop will be led by visiting faculty and students from TU Dortmund (Germany) in collaboration with SPDC faculty. Student workshop participants will examine the relationship between land use, residential segregation, and exposure to environmental benefits/burdens in East Lansing. The workshop will culminate in a series of presentations, including recommendations for policy and planning interventions to promote issues of social and ecological justice in East Lansing. Space is limited. If you are interested in attending one of the scheduled presentations listed below, please contact Noah Durst, Assistant Professor of Urban and Regional Planning, at or 517-353-3184.
