Book Talk: Greening in the Red Zone: Disaster, Resilience and Community Greening

Thursday, September 11, 2014 at 4:00pm to 5:00pm

Mann Library, Stern Seminar Room 160
Cornell University Mann Library, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853, USA

Environmental crises, economic challenges, and a variety of other shocks or traumatic events have led to an awareness for the need to understand both the theory and practice of crisis management, especially from the human perspective. How can our deep connection with nature be transformative and help us recover from these disasters?

Join us for a Chats in the Stacks book talk with Keith Tidball, senior extension associate in the Department of Natural Resources in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, program leader for the Nature and Human Security Program, and associate director of Cornell's Civic Ecology Lab (CEL). Tidball is a visiting scholar for USDA NIFA, the New York State coordinator for the Extension Disaster Education Network, and faculty fellow for the Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future. His new book, coedited by Marianne Krasny, professor of Natural Resources and director of the Civic Ecology Lab, was published by Springer, August 2013. This 2014 edition contains a variety of research and policy frameworks that explore how the creation and access to green spaces helps us recover and become more resilient communities.

This event is hosted by Mann Library. Buffalo Street Books will offer books for purchase and signing. Light refreshments served.
