Hi All

We have a GSS talk from Leann Andrews *Today (02/25) at 5pm in OSB 425*.
Talk title and abstract below.

Greg, Hilary and Brad

Title: *Demonstrating How Green Walls Could Contribute to Urban Resilience*

*Abstract:* The UW Green Futures Research and Design Lab has been
investigating how green walls could address the urban heat island effect,
increase building performance and carbon reduction, recycle and clean roof
runoff, and address loss of habitat in the urban environment. Leann
Andrews will share preliminary temperature, water, flora and fauna research
findings on the Green Wall demonstration project at Gould Hall on campus
and talk about how built environment designers are exploring ways to
address climate change impacts through small scale interventions. Leann is
a landscape architect getting her PhD in the Built Environment.

**The PCC Graduate Student Seminar (GSS) is organized by graduate students
for graduate students. The series provides an extremely laid back
environment where grad students give 25-35 min presentations on their
research followed by a 20 minutes of questions/discussion on the topic.
It's a great opportunity to see what is going on in climate research with
your fellow students down the hall or across campus. Plus, it you are
interested in presenting, it's a great chance to show off some of your own
research and receive feedback on your work. Presentations should be geared
toward a general scientific audience (of graduate students) with ample
background information so everyone can follow. As always, *be*v*er*ages
will be provided for a minimal donation.

If you have not attended the GSS before, we encourage you to attend. It is
a great way to meet other students and get involved in the PCC.
