Kate and Gena will be speaking at panels throughout the Buckminster Fuller Challenge symposium taking place this weekend in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, on Saturday, November 11th.
The Fuller Challenge, which launched in 2007, is a prize program specifically working to identify, catalyze, and celebrate projects that employ whole systems approaches to problem solving. Living Breakwaters won the award in 2014.
Gena will be part of the “Aquatic Ecosystems” panel, which will discuss how humanity can build new relationships between humanity and aquatic ecosystems, after our detrimental impacts on coastal communities, reefs, sea life, water quality etc. Gena will be joined by John Todd of John Todd Design, and Bren Smith of Greenwave.
Kate will be on the “Urban Ecosystems” panel, which will focus on how we organize, develop and manage our cities to be sustainable and resilient places in the face of climate change. She will be joined by Ryan Chin of MIT Media Lab and Eden Bruckman of The Living Building Challenge. The panel will be moderated by Andrew Revkin of NYTimes’ Dot Earth Blog.
