The workshop "If the past teaches, what does the future learn?", conducted by the Integrated History and Future of People on Earth (IHOPE), will be held from 29 October to 2 November 2018 in Annapolis, Maryland, USA.

Venue

National Center for the National Socio-Environmental Synthesis (SESYNC).

Logistics

This is a closed workshop, only open to invited participants, as per SESYNC's rules.

Description

To ensure the human future, it is of utmost importance that the conditions, ideas, and practices that nurture both the planet and our species be implemented. Of particular concern are today’s cities, many of which are not sited or planned for long-term sustainability.

IHOPE asserts that the laboratory of the past is where sustainable urban forms can be identified and their characteristics evaluated for future use. This workshop proposes to demonstrate how insights from the study of ancient urban systems can add to composite pools of knowledge that integrate with 21st century technological and other knowledge of how to reduce future risk and vulnerability.

This Foundation will explore how long-lasting cities of the past remained sustainable, even in the face of environmental change. The team will examine how their form, metabolism, governance, and environmental management — especially as regards the wider support system — have ensured sustainability, and how unearthing data on ancient urban systems can bring fresh ideas to the human future.
