Learning from the Land, in the City
Learning from the Land, in the City is a series of seasonal walks exploring the ecology of Winnipeg’s urban landscape. Each walk will explore a different theme through field walks in the urban environment that bring together experts from the worlds of design, ecology, community development and more. Speakers will share diverse ways of knowing about the land, weaving a holistic picture of the urban environment and our relationship with it.
This walk happened on Saturday, April 27, 2019. Read more about the walk and guest speakers here.

Winter / Energy and the Cosmic Whole
The purpose of this series of walks is to explore how our city functions as a connected social and ecological system. We know that the health of people and the land are intimately connected, but what does this look like in an urban setting? How does urbanization and colonization change ecosystems and impact communities? How can we design cities to work in harmony with natural systems and be more socially and ecologically resilient?
