Human centric urbanism… and greening the city (hosted by CallisonRTKL, Manchester)

event on
11 September
2019

Join a big conversation with some of the city’s most forward thinking creative and academic minds as we discuss reasons and ways to green our city region. How can we make Manchester into a city that fosters the wellbeing, creativity and health of its people?

Join CallisonRTKL’s Matt Pickering in a conversation with some of Greater Manchester’s innovative change makers: people who really care about making our city region a healthier, most sustainable place to live and work.

Jonathan Miley from Exterior Architecture – the brains behind the RHS Manchester Garden and the green space at Battersea Power Station, Kampus and others.

Joe Weeks founder of community project The Moss Cider Project and advocate of hyperlocalism.

Sian Day from Manchester charity City of Trees, who are working to plant a tree for every person in Greater Manchester.

They will be joined by representatives from Manchester’s environmental community who measure economic as well as eco value.

And just like at our July event, we’ll welcome stories and comments from our invitees, some of whom have track records in creating places incorporating parks, canals and biodiversity.

The event venue is fully accessible. Please advise whether you would like any communications support.
