Congratulations to the winners of the Climate Action Competition. Organized by Professor Joe Kennedy and the Center for Healthy Environments, the competition was supported by a grant from NewSchool Foundation’s Hay Fund. Students had ten weeks to propose unique, innovative, and creative solutions to address climate change and resilience in the San Diego/ Tijuana region. Following presentations, proposals were judged on relevancy, business case, creativity, research, graphic and verbal presentation, and relevance to San Diego’s regional need. Prizes were awarded for first, second, and third, and best business idea, best climate action idea, and best regional idea.
We had a wonderful evening hearing about the experiences Miles and Matthew had in Mexico over the summer.
Matthew West gained experience in natural building methods and the effects of biophilic design on human health in Baja California, Mexico.
Miles Patterson went to Mexico City to attend a two-week course in urban design with the Architectural Association Visiting School of London and to explore the cultural, social, and historic conditions of the city.
Congratulations to our 2016 Dr. Steve Altman Pillars Scholarship Recipients who just received their checks.
Thanks to the Scholarship Committee, the Foundation Board, and especially Steve Altman for his continued support of the Pillars Scholarship!
