Glass-House Chats are monthly hour-long online spaces for conversation and connection, to ask questions and explore ideas, approaches and methods, share learning and meet others. They are free sessions for anyone interested, and are kept to around 10 participants to allow for open dialogue.
About this Session
With the heightened effects of the ongoing climate crisis and its continual shaping of our cities, relationships, and places, we want to use this Chat to explore how we can advocate and co-create equitable green futures for our urban spaces.
Equitable green futures sit at the intersection between environment, economy, health, and the urban realm. As disparities between these sectors continue to widen we are all challenged with unpacking the relationship between, planning, design, policies, communities and the environment to co-create an equitable green future.
In this May Chat we will be asking, what are the building blocks to an equitable green future? How can we reverse or correct environmental injustices, such as a lack of access to green space? What is the role of designers and local authority members in creating or promoting climate-conscious design solutions?
About the Series
The sessions will be chaired by The Glass-House team, who will briefly introduce the theme and then open the floor for an informal and open discussion among participants.
To ensure space for meaningful discussion, places are limited to a small group. Key discussion points will be collated and shared after each session, and Chatham house rules are kept when sharing any points from the event.
