Image of the Future Episode Two: Collaborative Democracy by Design

The Institute for Everyday Democracy is a place to exchange ideas, join in discussions, and generate a body of thought about how we participate in our democracy. Through our Image of the Future podcast, we host conversations that collectively explore ideas that prepare us for the future. Such a collective exercise is not about what we like or don’t like, nor is it about the “me” or “mine.” It is a much deeper and courageous exploration of what ought to happen.

Episode two features an interview with Jeff Hou, a professor of landscape architecture at UW and leading thinker and writer on the subject of community design. During his conversation with Milenko, Jeff recounts international design projects, teaching his students about equitable design, and ensuring that everyone has a seat at the table.
