David_TED_June_2017DE founder and pres­i­dent, David Oswald, presents at TEDx Laval on May 15, 2017. The title of the talk is “Main­stream­ing Ecol­ogy Into Cities: Build­ing our Urban Future with Design and Envi­ron­men­tal Thinking”.

David was hon­oured to be pre­sent­ing along­side some very remark­able peo­ple who shared their mov­ing sto­ries, com­pelling ideas, and extra­or­di­nary artis­tic tal­ents. This TEDx talk sum­ma­rizes the design approach the DE team is tak­ing on var­i­ous man­dates around the world — some of which are focused at the city level and oth­ers at the national, regional, and inter­na­tional level.

The key the­sis pre­sented is that “we need to redesign every­thing” and ecosys­tems think­ing needs to drive this design process. See the pre­sen­ta­tion and DE projects for more information.
