Join us for an immersive exploration of the urban landscape with our “Urban Regenerative Landscape” walk!

As advocates for shaping a better world through thoughtful design, we're excited to invite you on a journey that delves into the symbiotic relationship between nature and the built environment.

At SvN, our mission is clear: to shape the built environment for the betterment of people and the planet.

By embracing opportunities to reimagine how we live, work, and interact with our surroundings, our team is dedicated to making a positive impact on the places we call home.

During this enlightening walk, we'll uncover the unexpected beauty of plants thriving in spaces that weren't built for them.

From resilient weeds poking through cracks in pavement to carefully cultivated green spaces, we'll discuss how these living organisms shape and enhance our collective experience of the city.

As we traverse the streets, parks, and alleyways, we'll pose thought-provoking questions: What is growing all around us, and what does it reveal about our relationship with nature?

How do we perceive and treat plants in our everyday environments, and what can we learn from their resilience and adaptability?

To further engage participants, we'll be distributing Urban Plants Guide sheets, inviting everyone to actively observe and document the diverse flora encountered along the way.

This interactive element adds a layer of exploration and discovery, encouraging deeper connections with the urban landscape.

Join us as we celebrate the beauty, resilience, and potential of urban greenery during our “Urban Regenerative Landscape” Jane's Walk.

Together, let's cultivate a deeper understanding of the vital role that plants play in shaping vibrant and sustainable cities for generations to come.
