Description

Gentrification is not urban renewal. Urban renewal is not just about the redevelopment of dilapidated buildings, nor simply the physical change of neighbourhoods. The epitome of the art of ‘kainos’ urban renewal is to transform a community grounded on its place-based knowledge to produce ‘planet, place and people friendly’ environmental qualities that nourish people’s multifaceted well-being. Join this Webinar if you want to learn how to carry out ‘kainos’ urban renewal that balances exchange and use values in space to produce places for human flourishing.
