Once again, the Heard is proud to be partners with the not-for-profit Ideas Exchange, Zócalo Public Square, in presenting an evening of fascinating discussion on a topic of intense current interest. Admission is free, but RSVPs are required.
From the Zócalo Public Square website:
“Even before climate change had the world worrying about sustainability, Phoenix was plagued by air pollution and rising temperatures. What environmental, economic, social, and political forces transformed Phoenix into a metropolis? And does such a metropolis belong in the middle of the Arizona desert? New York University historian Andrew Needham, author of Power Lines: Phoenix and the Making of the Modern Southwest, former Phoenix mayor Terry Goddard, and Sarah Porter, director of ASU’s Kyl Center for Water Policy at Morrison Institute, visit Zócalo to discuss how Phoenix as we know it came to be–and the consequences of all its growth.”
