Rewilding Cities panel
On 21 April 2021, David appeared on an online panel powered by Future of Cities in partnership with NewCities Foundation, Design Science Studio, and Buckminster Fuller Institute.
The question the panelists were asked to consider:
Before society unthinkingly returns to “normal,” how can we seize this moment to decarbonize and “rewild” our cities, resetting our relationship with nature? If there is one thing the last year has taught us, it’s the pressing need for greater access to public green space — our wellbeing and the health of our environment depend on it.
The panel featured Deepak Chopra, founder of The Chopra Foundation and bestselling author; David Holmgren, co-originator of the permaculture concept and founder of Holmgren Design; Jeanne Gang, distinguished global architect and Principal of Studio Gang; Tony Cho, Founder of Future of Cities. and Amanda Joy Ravenhill, Executive Director of Buckminster Fuller Institute and Poet Shelley Bruce.
