We are pleased to announce the Miami Design Charrette on Saturday, June 21st in the Wynwood Arts District, providing a unique opportunity for young entrepreneurs and environmental leaders to collaborate with current experts on growth plans for Miami-Dade County.
The Miami Design Charrette invites locals to shape a vision for smart and sustainable growth across Dade county, offering key strategies to cope with the imminent threats of our time: rising seas, diminishing resources and an increasing population. Workshop participants will consider how to accommodate the county’s ever-growing population, while continuing to protect vital environmental resources and providing residents with higher quality of life.
We will open the Charrette with a morning bike tour of Wynwood led by Wynwood Mural Tours (BYOB - Bring Your Own Bike!), and we will close with a social happy hour at Gramps Bar. A nominal fee of $12 covers all seminars and workshops in addition to breakfast and lunch; larger donations will enable interested students and disadvantaged citizens to attend. For more information and sponsorship opportunities, please contact Celeste De Palma at email@example.com.
