NewCities & Future of Cities Present: “Rewilding Cities”


re·wild /rēˈwīld/ verb
restore (an area of land) to its natural uncultivated state (used especially with reference to the reintroduction of species of wild plant and animal life that have been driven out).

Before society unthinkingly returns to “normal,” how can we seize this moment to decarbonize and “rewild” our cities, resetting our relationship with nature? If there is one thing the last year has taught us, it’s the pressing need for greater access to public green space – our wellbeing and the health of our environment depend on it.

Powered by Future of Cities in partnership with NewCities, Design Science Studio, and Buckminster Fuller Institute. Featuring Deepak Chopra, founder of The Chopra Foundation and bestselling author; David Holmgren, co-originator of the global Permaculture movement and founder of Holmgren Design; Jeanne Gang, distinguished global architect and Principal of Studio Gang; Tony Cho, Founder of Future of Cities, Amanda Joy Ravenhill, Executive Director of Buckminster Fuller Institute, and Poet Shelley Bruce.
