Over half of the world’s population lives in urban areas. How can we harness ecology to address injustice and climate change, while ensuring prosperity in our communities?

In Episode 1 of this three-part series, Senior Landscape Ecological Planner/Designer, Jennifer Dowdell, ASLA, and senior Landscape Architect and Urban Planner, Aiman Duckworth, introduce an iterative urban planning approach grounded in socio-ecological principles.

In Episodes 2 and 3, Jennifer and Aiman will delve into the details of the process, from engagement and analysis to the development of a planning framework that provides foundations for resilience, conservation, economic and community revitalization, and environmental justice.
