Green Matters Symposium: Restoring and Renewing our Urban Landscapes
Silver Spring, MD
The conference will focus on practices that heal our damaged urban landscapes, shifting the focus from sustainability strategies that slow environmental degradation and toward ones that regenerate the land. The keynote will be given by Dr. Timothy Beatley of UVA who is a leader in “Green Urbanism” and creator of the Biophilic City Network. Participants will learn about regenerative landscape design and gardening practices that help restore our ecosystems on both small and large scales. Presentations will also explore how we can prepare our landscapes to absorb stresses and maintain functionality in the face of future climate change impacts.
