REWILDING VANCOUVER: J.B. MACKINNON DESCRIBES WHAT A FUTURE VANCOUVER COULD LOOK LIKE

REWILDING VANCOUVER: J.B. MACKINNON DESCRIBES WHAT A FUTURE VANCOUVER COULD LOOK LIKE
MacKinnon explores what a future Vancouver might look like with nature included in our planning.

J.B. MacKinnon is an independent journalist and author or co-author of four books including The 100-Mile Diet: A Year of Local Eating, which catalyzed the local foods movement. His most recent book, The Once and Future World, re-imagines Vancouver, once an astoundingly rich ecosystem, home to grizzly bears, humpback whales and healthy salmon streams.

As J.B. MacKinnon rewinds the clock, he captures the time when our connection to and respect for nature was lost — not through conscious choice, but to a steady diminishment in the face of "progress" and a long-term pattern of forgetting what nature can be. In his talk Rewilding Vancouver at Cecil Green Park House on Thursday, February 27 (see details here), MacKinnon asks us to imagine "What if we actively planned for the nature of the future," and shows us what that future Vancouver might look like.

This is the fifth talk (of six) in the series Utopia/Dystopia: Creating the Worlds That We Want.
