For more information about the Ecohumanities for Cities in Crisis series, see ecohumanities.fiu.edu and read an Op-Ed in the Herald about the project.

From the op-ed piece: "The series, funded by a grant to FIU from the National Endowment for the Humanities, aims to add questions about values, imagination and culture to our deliberations about the future. For those of us who can’t design water pumps or predict the rate of sea rise, the forum will provide an opportunity to learn and think about the past, present and future of Miami’s natural world."

The event is free, but please rsvp here

The Kampong is located at 4013 Douglas Road.
