Greenwich Forum 2012 December 20, 2011

  • GREENwich Forum 2012
  • Friday 20 January 2012 4pm – 8pm
  • Lecture Theatre QA180
  • Maritime Greenwich Campus
The act of building turns our lands and ecosystems into commodities for human consumption. Does this commodification of Natures’ wonders dilute its power and symbolic value or can it bring about a better appreciation of the Natural world and its wildness, to a society presently detached from Nature and immersed in digital communication? Please join us to discuss this and other implications that we should consider when designing whilst caring for The Earth.

We went to hear the Forum and there was nobody there. Was the date or the venue changed?

Apologies but this event had to be rescheduled at the last minute due to rooming clashes. The event will now take place, with a slightly different programme on the 27th January:
