FOREST FOR CHANGE Designed by Es Devlin, in collaboration with
Landscape Designer Philip Jaffa and Urban Greening Specialists Scotscape
We are living in an age of ecological crisis, which the current Covid-19 pandemic has either shone a light on or further exacerbated. These include, poor health and unhealthy living situations of millions of people across the world, the climate emergency which gets more urgent day-by-day, the deeply embedded social and economic inequalities in our societies, and the rapid transformation in work and the economy which will affect the employment and livelihood opportunities for all.
RESONANCE, the theme initiated by Artistic Director Es Devlin for the 2021 Confluence of Thinkers via Design, seeks to find radical and rapid responses to problems facing humanity, today and tomorrow, in response to four briefs – Work, Environment, Health and Society.
