The Design Trust for Public Space presents: The Restorative City: Designing New York City with Health at the Center
The Restorative City is a one-day convening that will bring together urban planners, city officials, neighborhood advocates, and public health experts to center health equity in the design and planning of New York City. This special event will elevate important conversations about community health, environmental justice, social resilience, and design excellence as core drivers of how New Yorkers, especially those most vulnerable, can thrive. It is an open, inclusive call to action for New York City's next chapter.
Join us in-person at the Ford Foundation Center for Social Justice for a restorative day of panel discussions, performances, and workshops geared towards building community wellness through public space and the built environment.
Be a part of the conversation with guest speakers from the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Department of City Planning, NYC Mayor's Office, Make the Road New York, the Design Trust for Public Space, special performances by local artists, and more!
