Panel discussion starts at 1:00pm
Public Forum starts after the break at 3:00pm
We connect with our urban environment all day, everyday. We travel from one part of the city to another, by public transit, by bicycle, by foot, by wheelchair, by stroller or by car. We move between buildings, through parks, back lanes and public spaces.
But who designs these common spaces and shared infrastructure? What values influence these designs?
When we look at our city, we don’t find the color green in most places other than our front lawn and city parks. As environmental awareness grows, and societal values shift, will city planners and designers begin greening city design?
Imagine small gardens on sidewalks. Imagine buying your fruits and vegetables from inner city farms. Imagine public parking lots with trees - where the parked cars are shaded, and people can gather.
“1 plus 1 equals 3 - at least” invites you to join activist groups, designers, architects and urban planners to imagine a greener city. Together, we will discuss how design in our city can change.
