October 23 – Enjoyed one last day in Wisconsin and hiked to the top of Rib Mountain with my Dad.
October 24 – Today I participated in a workshop called Building Blocks – a collaborative and creative approach to community improvement – facilitated by Design for Agency. In this workshop we focused on the issues of recycling, tree pits, and food waste in the Flatbush / Ditmas Park neighborhoods of Brooklyn. We worked in teams to imagine a “zero-waste” future (NYC is actually attempting this! Read more about it here.) Leveraging our common resources, we designed a day in the life of this hopeful future and imagined the actions and ideas that would get us there.
