Texas is growing more rapidly than ever and crucial resources like food, electricity, housing, water, and jobs will be in even greater demand in the future.
Planet Texas 2050 (PT2050) is an eight-year sprint to find solutions that will make our Texas communities more resilient and better prepared to address the needs of all Texans. To do that, The University of Texas is bringing together architects, archaeologists, city planners, public health experts, geologists, engineers, computer scientists, artists – and more.
This panel brings a city of Dallas representative together with PT2050 researchers who are working on these issues to have a dialogue about Sustainable Texas Communities, Resilient Cities in a Post-Carbon Future, and Integrated Models for Complex Decision-Making.
