David Witty will express his thoughts on the growing consensus that design will be critical to get us out of the social, ecological, and economic mess we are in. In his view, the environmental design professions: architecture, landscape architecture, planning and interior design, have a role to play individually and collectively to ensure a sustainable future that provides quality of life. This is especially pertinent to Ottawa as we complete our Official Plan review.
