The Power of Sustainable Design in Public Green Space

Public space is so important for the health and well-being of our communities, our wildlife and for the environmental sustainability of our cities. This TEDx Talk highlights fantastically what can be achieved to meet the needs of everyone, as well as economic prosperity.

Adrian Benep, Senior Vice President and Director of City Park Development for The Trust for Public Land (US), shares his long years of experience within public space development and captivates with a story of the progression and perception of parks over time, including world-famous Central Park and the High Line.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. These local, self-organised events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organised TED event.
