Mission Statement

The mission the Broward Community Design Collaborative (BCDC) is to build interdisciplinary collaboration to develop smart urban design oriented solutions at multiple scales, with the objective to address the global challenges of climate change, help build healthy communities in south Florida that are walkable, livable, and equitable. While the focus of our efforts is on the local context, the geographic center of a metropolitan region with a population of approximately 6 million, our academic mission is to look at sustainable design solutions within an urban and suburban sub-tropical setting.
