Lecture by Jim Blackburn, Professor in the Practice in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at Rice University.
This lecture will focus on the challenges and opportunities that lie before Houston, a key city in the global response to changing weather patterns, emerging economies and changing consumer preferences and needs. The future of Houston as a serious competitor in the global marketplace lies in many of the choices that will be made in the next few years. Are we ready to take our place as a truly world-class city, showing the way for the world, or will we be left behind?
