    Testing, Testing!

    What effect does the city have on your brain and body? In a series of weekly tours developed with Lab Team member Charles Montgomery, Dr. Colin Ellard, author of You Are Here: Why We Can Find Our Way to the Moon, but Get Lost in the Mall, has begun to gather evidence about the psychological effects of public spaces near the Lab. This week, join Dr. Ellard on this tour and measure the effects of the city on your own brain and body.

    What Is Your Personal Ecological Footprint?

    Climate change caused by human activity is the sum of billions of individual activities that increase greenhouse gas emissions—which means that each one of us as an individual has a direct impact. Join Columbia University professor Clara Irazábal as she speaks about climate change, then measure your own ecological footprint and learn ways you might be able to improve your footprint in day-to-day activities that, when collectively practiced, can have direct and feasible results in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. (Organized by Latin American and Caribbean Lab, School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, Columbia University.)
