Fireside Chat: Social and Environmental Placemaking | October 21, 2021

Registration Link

During the pandemic, a widespread understanding that connecting to nature is an essential part of a healthy human condition has been brought to light. For many, parks and other outdoor environments served as the go to place for mental and social healing to occur. However, many cities have not been designed to provide these experiences to all people, especially those in underserved areas.  Therefore, the question becomes what can designers, academics, and policy makers do to provide equitable urban communities.

Join us for our next LGA Fireside Chat where we will discuss these ideas and more with Alden Stoner, CEO of Nature Sacred and Dr. Angela Loder. Vice President of Research at Well Building Institute and author of Small-Scale Urban Greening, Creating Places of Health, Creativity, and Ecological Sustainability.
