This is the second Research Roundtable bringing together researchers interested in transforming the built environment from a major carbon emitter to net carbon sink through an interdisciplinary approach.
Cities are hotspots of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere. Achieving livable climate scenarios in the future depends on cities reducing carbon emissions today. Complex societal problems, such as reducing emissions and removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, can be effectively addressed only through interdisciplinary research that identifies new approaches and opportunities.
