    Park Bench Chat: Harnessing the power of design for healthier, resilient and just cities

     

    Join us for a Park Bench Chat bringing together leaders in the movement to put our cities to work for community, social justice, health, and climate resilience.


    This Earth Month, Trust for Public Land President and CEO Diane Regas will be in conversation with Dana Bourland, vice president of the Environment Program at The JPB Foundation and author of Gray to Green Communities: A Call to Action on the Housing and Climate Crises; and designer, urbanist, and spatial justice expert Liz Ogbu, founder and principal of Studio O, which, in partnership with communities, leverages design to catalyze and sustain social impact.



    Cities only cover two percent of the earth’s surface, but they are home to 85 percent of the population. And in America, our cities need work. With its long history of prejudiced policies, our housing system is both a symptom and a cause of persistent racial disparities. And residential buildings in the U.S. account for 20 percent of greenhouse gas emissions, making housing one of the key drivers of climate change. During this Park Bench Chat, Regas, Ogbu and Bourland will discuss how thoughtful, collaborative design can lay a foundation for a more just and equitable future. They’ll also discuss a new model for cities that prioritizes climate resilience, health, and access to quality parks and green space. And they’ll share tactics for ensuring public spaces enable social connection and cultural expression.
