Refreshments will be served

Come and interact with us on Friday, April 27th, 2012 from 2pm – 6pm in the Center for Sustainability, Energy Efficiency, and Design on the Main Campus of Philadelphia University. The students are looking forward to an opportunity to share their work in an informal poster session format.  Working on two sites in West Philadelphia, the MSSD students in collaboration with the Landscape Architecture students and faculty helped to shape and test a conceptual framework for a more sustainable Park West Community. The framework was developed as part of a 18 month long Green Trails Initiative funded by DCNR that was managed by the Landscape Architecture Program at Philadelphia University. The project is led by the American Cities Foundation and is in partnership with the West Philadelphia Financial Services Institute.
