Connected landscapes can support adaptation and resilience to climate change for both ecosystems and local communities – this has been the focus of an interdisciplinary research project in Southern California for the past two years. However, the importance of connection extends beyond the data.


To bridge the gap between science and its application in the community, the Connecting Wildlands and Communities (CWC) project brings together four local artists with its team of planners, environmental engineers, ecologists, and geographers in an intentional effort to better translate climate data and the stories behind it.


Join us for a virtual conversation with this collaborative team to hear their unique views on “connection,” exploring how people, landscapes, and data can come together to influence the final products and the critical role design plays in advancing a community-centered approach to a climate-resilient future.

 

The second annual San Diego Design week, presented by Mingei International Museum, will take place September 8-12, 2021. The presentations, studio tours, workshops and more celebrate design throughout the binational design community of San Diego and Tijuana.
