Restorative Design: Mending Humanity’s Relationship with Nature

Restorative Design: Mending Humanity’s Relationship with Nature

Setup

The threads that connect humans to their natural environments have frayed, and some have completely severed. In an attempt to mend those we still can, designers are forging meaningful connections with nature to make reparations. Their collaborative processes — working with nature and in teams across multiple disciplines — are optimistic, but urgent. In this session, learn how designers engage with the complexities of nature in innovative and groundbreaking ways, driven by a profound awareness of climate change and ecological crises that we face.
