Jamie Dean, program manager, East London Green Grid will participate in an informal discussion with the College of Design on Wednesday, May 12, 2010, 1 p.m., 259 Rapson Hall.
The vision for the East London Green Grid is to create a network of interlinked, multi-purpose open spaces with connections to the places where people live and work, public transport, the Green Belt and the Thames. This will be a richly varied landscape that will include diverse uses to appeal to all. Conceived as a living network of parks, green spaces, river and other corridors, London's ambitious Green Grid initiative will improve the quality of open space for people and wildlife, manage water quality and the risk of flooding, improve public health, enhance biodiversity, and link communities.
Dean also gives a public lecture on Thursday, May 13, 2010, 7 p.m., Cowles Auditorium, Humphrey Institute.
