Environmental turbulence and climate change take a significant toll on all living beings, disproportionately affecting people from under-resourced communities. These individuals face greater risks and higher rates of negative health impacts, which often diminish their quality of life and life expectancy.

As we navigate the challenges these issues pose to the built environment, it is crucial to collaborate and include the perspectives of those most affected in the design of buildings and spaces intended to serve them. This panel discussion will explore the importance of community-centric design, each bringing  unique and relevant viewpoints on how they strive to transform the status quo.
