    Description

    The Ball State University Land Design Institute (LDI) pursues ecologically and culturally sustainable land design through education, research, outreach, and demonstration. LDI seeks to lead communities (local, regional, global) to sustainable futures. It connects communities and sustainability experts to optimize education about land management, planning, and design for sustainability; and innovative monitoring approaches and technologies for measuring ecosystem implications of these activities. LDI is building its biome-based global network, including inter-national sustainability consortia, to enhance understanding of sustainability by sharing information and partnering to translate global calls for sustainability into regional agenda.
