Great Mountain Forest Conservation Talk

February 24 at 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Free

By 2050, our species will add 2.5 billion new inhabitants to the planet’s cities. This massive global demographic trend will call for unprecedented construction, corresponding to a doubling of existing building stock, a tripling of current urban land area, a massive spike in atmospheric carbon concentrations and a host of other impacts to natural systems and landscapes. What if instead of depleting our planet’s forests, peatlands and wetlands, the making of global buildings and cities could incentivize their restoration and enhance biodiversity?

Join Alan Orchanschi, Principal and Partner at Gray Organschi Architecture and Senior Critic at the Yale School of Architecture, as he poses the answer to this forecast issue and discusses a way forward.
