Climate Week: Tactics And Strategy In Urban Design

Russell Preston, Founder of Principle Group; Board member of Congress for the New Urbanism

As a designer and urbanist since 1999 and contributor to Tactical Urbanism guides, Russell Preston will discuss the book, Tactical Urbanism: Short-Term Action for Long-Term Change by Michael Lydon and Tony Garcia. Tactical urbanism is an approach whereby quick, low-cost, creative community-based projects can to lead to public and government support for permanent inspiring projects that improve urban living and promotes action from the bottom up when strategies and policies from the top move too slowly. How this and other urban approaches can be applied to climate change will be compared.
