Event description

Description

The challenges in addressing environmental resilience, displacement, affordable housing, access to mobility choices, meaningful public engagement, and other social equity considerations in planning and design are so broad and complex, they require a shared approach to facilitate all the necessary conversations and deliver actionable solutions. Most of these challenges faced by Boston communities are not limited to local neighborhoods—their effects are felt and shared across the Commonwealth and beyond. Multiple futures are at stake, and we can make a difference by acting now. The Sasaki Foundation recognizes the need for interdisciplinary approaches, diverse community voices, and regional cooperation as key drivers to find shared solutions and create shared impact.

Join us to hear Sasaki Foundation Design Grants finalists pitch their ideas for projects that address proactive approaches to climate adaptation, new models for housing, innovation in transit and access to mobility choices, and creative community building. Finalists will be determined in May of 2020.

The Sasaki Foundation Design Grants is an annual grant program presented to teams of two to four people from Greater Boston communities who propose projects in the Foundation's four focus areas that work to promote equity in design. Teams will work in the Incubator at Sasaki in proximity to Sasaki designers as well as entrepreneurs, innovators and industry leaders.
