Event Description

What can the designs and patterns of natural systems and ancient cultures teach us about the ways in which people can collaborate most effectively to generate positive economic and social change?
After working for several years in the 1980′s as a lead designer of large scale corporate projects, in the 1989 Mark embarked on a series of cultural immersion projects with numerous indigenous societies in order to derive place-making patterns which could be applied to urban settings in the United States. These patterns include broad participation, local ownership, and transference of authority to local populations, creative expression in planned and unplanned processes, and social capital as the primary economic engine of change.
Mark Lakeman’s last visit to Vancouver in 2011 ignited sparks of inspiration that have already given rise to numerous place-making projects throughout Vancouver. We are excited that Mark will have the opportunity to inspire many others (hopefully including you!) atLiving the New Economy this October.
In partnership with Village Vancouver Transition Society
