The forum will focus on transportation designs, infrastructure, land uses, build environments and public spaces.

The series is meant to bring together University of Michigan faculty, representatives from community organizations, city commissioners, city staff, and the public to discuss local sustainability concepts and efforts, according to a news release.

The first forum in January focused on resource management. The March 8 forum will highlight climate and energy issues, while the April 12 forum is focused on community.

Each program will include short presentations followed by a question-and-answer session.
