Environmental Change in our Cities. Symposium by Humanities Institute at New York Botanical Garden

November 7 Symposium: The Changing Nature of Nature in Cities

From rampant urbanization to the alarming spread of invasive species and the rapidly increasing concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, human activities are impacting natural systems on a global scale. Nowhere is the impact of mankind on nature more evident than in cities, where historic ecosystems have been irreversibly altered.

This expert-led symposium will explore the concept of novel ecosystems that are the result of urban development, and ask if these much-maligned accidents of unbridled growth could ultimately mitigate the impacts of environmental change and reintroduce the wonder of nature in cities.

Moderator:

Todd Forrest: Arthur Ross Vice President for Horticulture and Living Collections, The New York Botanical Garden.

Speakers:

Peter Del Tredici: Adjunct Associate Professor of Landscape Architecture, Harvard School of Design.

Richard J. Hobbs: School of Plant Biology, University of Western Australia.

Emma Marris: Author/Blogger/Journalist.

Kate Orff: Founder of SCAPE/LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE. Associate Professor at the Columbia School of Architecture.
