The Philly Tree Plan: A Conversation With A City About Relationships to Trees
Thursday, April 21 @ 10 am ONLINE
The Philly Tree Plan is an urban forestry strategic plan that centers the perspectives of Philadelphia residents to bring the benefits of trees to communities that need them the most, in the ways that support them the best. The design team worked in partnership with the City to reach over 8,000 residents using a variety of engagement tools. Leaders of Hinge Collective will share their process for developing strategies that focus on personal narratives at a city-wide scale and how these narratives shape strategic planning. More information on the speakers can be found on the Design Advocacy Group’s website. Registration is required for the event. You can register for the event HERE.
