Sustainable Urban Environments from Seoul

The co-director of the University of Cincinnati’s Center for Sustainable Urban Environments, Jim Uber, has been in Seoul, Korea for much of this summer working with Seoul National University.

During this trip Uber says that he is “trying to explore this metropolitan area of 18 million.” He goes on to share that Seoul presents many contrasts with Cincinnati…contrasts that naturally make him think about urban sustainability issues. As a result, Uber plans to write about these observations, contrasts and other issues from Seoul. In his first article Uber discusses the cost of urban rainfall – in particular the cost of water runoff and the misuse of our urban rainfall.

You can continue reading Uber’s work on the Sustainable Urban Environments blog that he intends to update regularly throughout the rest of the summer.
