In the 2020’s and beyond, the effects of climate change will grow much more severe, affecting agriculture, water systems, transportation, and the migration of people worldwide. The perspectives and tools of ecological design offer us pathways to re-imagine our homes, communities, land use, and economy and prepare for the challenging disruptions ahead. This talk will engage with these questions head-on and place particular focus on the ecological design challenges and opportunities facing Dutchess County communities.
