3rd Annual USS | Urban Soils & Remediation Restoration Rehabilitation Regeneration Resilience

12/6/18 8:30 AM to 12/7/18 6:00 PM

Our cities are built on soils. They are the axis of our urban universe. They scrub our air, filter our water, manage flood, buffer our coasts, support vegetation, food, animals, infrastructure, and... us.

But what happens when we degrade them and the systems they support, devastate them, destroy them, contaminate them... so how do they function then? How do urban soils behave? What processes are going on in urban soils? Urban soils, like people, are diverse and complex. We need to learn from them and know them better to understand how to manage them, reverse the damage we’ve caused, and work with them for a better future.
