Global Sustainability Scholars Final Presentations

Concluding the first round of research for the Global Sustainability Scholars, a virtual presentation was held to showcase the work done in the previous months. Topics were focused around urban sustainability issues regarding the Food, Water, and Energy Nexus. Four international research groups partnered with GSS to look at vertical green systems, food cooperatives, green infrastructure, and urban agriculture integration.

CCLS worked with Darryl from George Mason University to map Seattle’s food and agriculture system. Specifically looking at community food centers, community gardens as well as restaurants, grocery stores, and corner stores, the team utilized GIS to overlay various socioeconomic data on the Seattle area to see if patterns of income and food access exist. This research is continuing to evolve and will create a comprehensive overview of Seattle’s food system.
