Curt Wolf, the Managing Director of Urban Collaboratory at the University of Michigan, is preparing to share his insights in the upcoming Climate Innovation Virtual Town Hall presented by Great Lakes Now on February 13th at 7pm ET. During the session, he will speak from his expertise in establishing partnerships between academics and community stakeholders on topics of urban sustainability and climate resilience. He hopes to highlight the work of the Urban Collaboratory during the discussion.
The mission of the Urban Collaboratory is to partner with communities to solve on the ground challenges, such as making drinking water safer, improving infrastructure, increasing access to healthy food and much more. As Wolf stated, “We aim to bring concrete solutions to the communities, not merely assess how severe the problems are—we are helping to break down the barriers to advance these concepts in the Great Lakes region.”
In Wolf’s words, “Our work enables the adoption of these new and innovative ideas. Overcoming the challenges to bring these solutions to reality is of utmost importance. This event aligns well with research and innovation, pushing these solutions into practice.”
Wolf is dedicated to nurturing innovative solutions, supporting climate resilience and promoting comprehensive community involvement, reflecting greatly in his work. We are eagerly awaiting to hear more about the Urban Collaboratory’s efforts at the Climate Innovation Virtual Town Hall to gain new insights, solutions and collaborations from this important conversation.
