Please join sus­tain­abil­i­ty edu­ca­tor, Duane Elverum and artist Hol­ly Schmidt for a walk­ing dia­logue through SEFC.  Duane will draw from his expe­ri­ence in design think­ing, archi­tec­ture and com­mu­ni­ty engage­ment to con­sid­er the con­cerns of social and eco­log­i­cal sus­tain­abil­i­ty in the con­text of Vancouver’s green­est devel­op­ment, as well as the urban design chal­lenges of our grow­ing and chang­ing cities.  Hol­ly will explore the ques­tion of how sus­tain­abil­i­ty can be enact­ed not just built into our urban envi­ron­ments in the con­text of Grow, an urban agri­cul­ture project in SEFC. This walk will pro­voke ques­tions, spark curios­i­ty and stim­u­late a cre­ative response to sus­tain­able futures.
