DEI Speaker Series 2023-24: Grounded Landscapes - The Diversity of Land and Culture

Friday, October 6 at 4:30pm to 5:30pm

Lawrence Hall, 115
1190 Franklin Boulevard, Eugene, OR

Diversity makes us stronger, and our differences provide inherit capacity. As a species we are "Grounded" in "Landscape" that connects diverse humans with the environment. Together, we can reverse the cultural perception that have systematically manifested oppression and encourage all people to embrace nature towards developing a positive environmental empathy. This lecture will discuss the importance of fostering cultural diversity in design towards curating the public realm to take care of needs of all the people. We will also discuss how design will bring people together to heal the planet from climate change, racism, consumption, species extinction and inequity. Ultimately we all have a remarkable opportunity to shape the environment to benefit everyone. How will we design Grounded Landscapes?
