What if women designed Orkney? (Hybrid Event)

How can places be greener, wilder, more inclusive, liveable and poetic?

Join author May East for a conversation on the findings of her book What if Women Designed the City?

The book draws from in-depth walking interviews with 274 women from Edinburgh, Glasgow and Perth, and offers 33 leverage points on how planners, practitioners, and communities could intervene in planning systems so that cities, towns and rural areas can work better for women and girls, ultimately benefiting us all.

Co-hosted by THAW Orkney and H&I Climate hub, this hybrid conversation is part of a series of events deepening the discussion of gender sensitive place making in Scotland taking place in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth and Orkney culminating in an international conference with the participation of expert guest speakers from leading cities such as Vienna, Umea, Barcelona and Lyon in the autumn.
