The language of ‘smart cities’ has dominated discourse on sustainability recently and it comes with a bit of baggage. What does it mean to be a smart city and who decides what is smart and what is not? Generally pushing tech innovations and massive infrastructure projects, ‘smart cities’ often ignore and marginalize other cities that lack the same amount of investment potential. We’re here to change that!
Join us to explore some of these ‘unsmart cities’ and what they are doing in their urban rewilding efforts. We will learn why urban rewilding, the act of restoring natural processes to cities, has started to gain momentum globally, and how we can use low-tech solutions in our efforts to rewild our own cities.
Be prepared to dip your fingers in the mud for our seed balling exercise.
We request you to bring any seeds (foods, flowers, grains) that you may have at your home.
