We are very pleased to share that Hiroko Kikuchi of Creative Ecology Partners  will be participating in the Environmental Innovators Symposium at Keio University in Japan, organized by TPF2 & Architecture for Humanity Tokyo.

The Panel is titled “Really Resiliency – Reconstruction After Disaster and the Shift From Small Scale Reaction to Large Scale Transformation” and below is the description and a list of an amazing group of speakers!  If you are in Tokyo and Yokohama area, please stop by!

Rebuilding communities and nations after disaster is challenging in itself. In such a situation can reconstruction be used as catalyst for rebuilding nations and preparing for a future filled with change? This session explores the possibility of crossing disciplines to find a way to scale solutions in order to have a significant impact at the scale of nations while working at the scale of communities.
