Urgency is added to the selected specialties above and driven by the unique conditions of our time.  Please check three influences that affect your approach to problems solving most directly

  • Climate Change (extreme weather: drought, flood, fire, GHGs and resiliency)
  • Energy Use (renewables, consumer cost, efficiency and sustainability)
  • Mass transportation (rail, light rail, bus and personal urban mobility vehicles)
  • Consumption and trade (economics, well-being and status quo alternatives)
  • Social and economic justice issues ( hot buttons, special needs, poverty, equity)
  • Air, water and food quality (supply, protection, and urban connections)
  • Wilderness Preservation and Development (beyond the park/visitation idea)
  • Transdiciplines (biomimicry, cognitive science, public open access practices)

Climate, energy, transportation, trade, social justice and the survival basics above are prime concerns but not exclusive.  Add distinct “urgency category” for inclusion below. The text area is limited to a 100 characters, but please add new, or enhance existing learning domain below:
