We stand at the crossroads of history in the USA and in the world, as we seek to innovate solutions to a "climate crisis", a "water crisis", a reinvention of our energy systems, address environmental justice and income inequality, and ensure health and vitality through better choices for our food systems, at a time when mobility, income growth and opportunity seem to also be peaking and the nature of work, business and education are fundamentally changing.
In this Global Futures Special Seminar, Upmanu Lall will discuss some opportunities and trends related to reliable performance of renewable water and energy systems and mobility infrastructure systems and how it can be utilized to meet the goals of climate adaptation and infrastructure renewal.
