Jonathan Rose: Building a More Just and Compassionate Society
Free and Open to the Public
If we are to create a society in which the landscape of opportunity is equal for all, in a way that harmonizes humans and nature, we must entwine our understandings of interdependence and compassion. Jonathan F.P. Rose, author of The Well Tempered City: What Modern Science, Ancient Civilizations, and Human Behavior Teach Us About the Future of Urban Life and cofounder of the Garrison Institute, will discuss practical ways to do so.
Jonathan F. P. Rose works with cities and not-for-profits to plan and build green affordable and mixed-income housing and cultural, health, and educational centers. Recognized for creating communities that literally heal both residents and neighborhoods, Rose is one of the nation’s leading thinkers on the integration of environmental, social, and economic solutions to the urban issues facing us today. Rose’s work as the founder of investment, development and urban planning firm The Jonathan Rose Companies has received rewards from the Urban Land Institute, American Institute of Architects, American Planning Association, National Trust for Historic Preservation, and many others. He is cofounder of the Garrison Institute and the creator of its Climate, Mind, and Behavior program.
