On Our Minds
Conserving nature in cities
What does sustainable urban development look like? TTBOOK's Steve Paulson posed the question to urban theorists Benjamin Barber and Julian Agyeman, along with Arnold Randall of the Cook County Forest Preserve, during a recent discussion put on by the Center for Humans and Nature and the Forest Preserves of Cook County.
Check out this video to see what they had to say about our understanding of nature in urban settings, as well as the meaning of diversity in conservation efforts.
