Urban Evolution: Using Regenerative Principles for All-Inclusive City Design

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

While natural building is an ancient art form, it is also a contemporary movement, bringing new and fresh designs to life. Intelligent designs hold the solutions we can all build with. What sparks curiosity— the weaving together of cultural arts with ecological design to create systems and structures that not only sustain, but regenerate. By blending a unique spectrum of skills, with teamwork and style, we can build together naturally and influence the evolving nature of our cities, with a sense of community, where everyone is considered within the design. The artist-panelists include educators, builders, designers, organizers and biological architects. They will share their living experience and explore pathways to building movements within the "concrete jungle" of society. While we all desire to survive the future, the question is, how do we organize together fast enough and manifest the visionary designs of artists? It could be as simple as harnessing the strength and determination of the next generation, building with our youth toward a future with clean water, fresh air and real food. Presented by Mike Wird and Robin Eden of Regenerative Lifestyles LLC, Neambe Leadon of Museum of Natural History, Jay Reynolds of 180 Street Outreach Team, Gary Roland of RiseUp, and Beau Dunavant IV of Regenerative Revolutions and ReDesign Fort Collins.
