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.

Con­tact DE if you wish to book David for a keynote or event pre­sen­ta­tion.
