The Next Idea
"Be the change that you wish to see in the world." —Mahatma Gandhi
This quote resonates deeply with me these days, because in my Detroit neighborhood, the change I wish to see seems so far away.
Imagining places that are clean, safe and vibrant threads my work as an urban planner and sustainability advocate. Yet, despite years of planning and designing these grand visions, my daily landscape doesn’t match the efforts. I know there’s still a long way to go, but I’m getting anxious.
