January's Urban Sustainability Forum will explore the intersection of safety and land use.

Playgrounds, abandoned buildings, and maintained recreational parklands variously impact individual and community safety across Philadelphia's neighborhoods.

Even in neighborhoods where crime statistics are low,  broken sidewalks, vacancy, and poor lighting may influence the perception that those neighborhoods have higher crime rates than they do in reality.


The panelists will address the research associated with safety as it relates to land use and current efforts currently underway to enhance the quality of life.

Center for Environmental Policy

The goals of the Center for Environmental Policy (CEP) at The Academy of Natural Sciences are to evaluate key issues of environmental policy, facilitate dialogues and decision-making on environmental topics, and inform the public from both an academic as well as practical perspective.  The CEP will answer the need for a non-partisan, science-based organization that is capable of accessing and guiding a myriad of public and private stakeholders.

For more information on current CEP projects and initiatives, please see www.ansp.org/environmental/index.php
